Thoughts on Education
"I always enjoy the time when the 'light goes on'. It's a great feeling when you are trying to explain a complicated pathophysiological rationale and apply it to what a Paramedic would see in the field and all of a sudden... the light goes on and they get it."
"The other thing about teaching is the ability of students to constantly challenge me as an instructor; they always have a way to ask a questions I dont know and it's in these instances that some of the best learning (with the teacher and the student) occurs."
"One of my greatest accomplishments is to watch Paramedics, that I have had a direct influence on their education, come in and give me a report (as the Nurse in the ER) and still ask questions and continue to learn and further their professional career. It's really rewarding to me personally."
