At Long Beach City College I pride myself on bringing a fresh, unique perspective to all my classes. I use a variety of teaching methodologies to accomplish the goal of giving my students the necessary tools to excel in the classroom. I employ the use of a ground-breaking application called Top Hat to increase student attendance and participation, team projects to create interpersonal communication skills among students, TedEd talks, Cengage Mindtap to help my Personal Finance students grasp hard to understand concepts easily as well as a variety of different types of lectures, class activities, case studies and assignments.
