Watching students who, when they first started at Central Penn, struggled in the classroom cross the stage at commencement and receive their degrees with a look of pride and accomplishment in their eyes.

What do students like the most about the courses you teach?

I believe that students enjoy my presentation style, which has been described as "dramatic," and also the way I tie what I teach into my own real-world experiences.
