Joanne Sullivan, Ph.d, RDN, LDN
Education was stressed to me as an important part of life throughout my childhood. Since the beginning of my career in higher education, I have strived to promote a classroom environment that encourages students to perform at a high level. I consistently use a variety of teaching and learning strategies in order to create well-rounded courses. In addition, I believe that having students critically think about the material is fundamental to learning. I believe it is important to provide constructive feedback to students as it is an essential part of the learning process. I want students to excel in the classroom, so they can excel in the workforce.
