“I enjoy working with pre-service teachers at Saint Joseph’s University because I feel and see the impact reach a variety of settings both within the city and throughout the region. Teaching online is particularly enjoyable because students from across a wide range of backgrounds and locations can come together and learn in one shared space.”
