My teaching philosophy in a Health Science Curriculum is based on forming a solid foundation of information then sequentially building upon this foundation. This approach to education demands the instructor to be cognitively aware of all courses beginning taught within the curriculum and integrating this knowledge at each stage of the student's academic experience.
