My favorite part about teaching is...

Seeing students finally "get it."

What  I like most about MSU is...

The fact that it does not seem like a "big" school and the administration is truly interested in student  success.

What I like most about SMAT is...

The academic rigor of the athletic training education program and the wide variety of clinical experiences available to students.

What I enjoy most about SMAT students is...

Their willingness to accept the challenges of this major.

What I like most about the classes I teach is...

They meet early in the day!
