“I enjoy teaching at the university level because it allows me the opportunity to impact the education of future teachers and their students specifically in the area of assistive technology. I enjoy teaching online as the technology facilitates a global classroom allowing all learners to participate and share experiences, which enriches our overall learning environment.”
