In what ways do you connect with online students?
I use Zoom, email, Canvas and video calls.

My goal is for students to leave my courses with their skills enhanced, with portfolio examples of work-ready products and employment in the public health sector upon graduation.

You are your biggest coach and visionary for your professional growth and skills application. You must stretch yourself to succeed.
