Why do you enjoy teaching at SBU?

"SBU gives me a unique opportunity to incorporate both my knowledge and my faith in my teaching.  I am passionate about teaching because I strongly desire to multiply both my knowledge and my passion for helping people by sharing them with my students. I am excited when I have the privilege to see the “light bulb” moment, the moment the student understands. I am challenged by students and continually learn from them even as I teach them and enjoy the growth they stimulate in me. I feel I am successful when my students succeed and I strive to help as many people as I can reach their full potential. I firmly believe that anything is possible if you will focus on the next step, take what God has given you, and build on it."
