I believe that each student has untapped potential that can be brought to the surface by emphasis of learning techniques that play to the students strengths. Each student has his/her own style of learning and different methods should be employed for different students. Students should be allowed to celebrate small successes along the way and enjoy the journey.
I completed my bachelors degree is civil engineering in 1995 at the University of Illinois. More valuable than this has been my education in a real world experience, where mentoring and teaching, has led to my career successes. I have broad perspective on education which allows me to think outside the box to come up with best fit solutions. I also have a Master’s Degree in Geotechnical/ Structural Engineering.
