"I value teaching adult learners because they bring a wealth of life and work experiences to the classroom. This richness helps teach other students and aids in my own personal and professional growth.I never cease to be amazed by what they have already accomplished and where they plan to go with their education. It is a privilege to work, grow and learn along side them."
