"I have been a teacher for more than 40 years. I have taught students ranging from medical and dental residents to first graders. My primary emphasis has been teaching the anatomical sciences which include anatomy, neuroanatomy, histology, and embryology. I have taught them to all of the aforementioned students and to physical therapists, occupational therapists.

There are almost 38 course hours per week and that doesn't include what the students must do on their own time.

I want to point out that although I have been teaching for a long period of time I am not stuck in the past. I was the first individual at UNLV to do an online course. When I taught at UNLV I did online lectures using a platform called Camtasia.

I simply love teaching. I have won numerous teaching awards. But two of them I think should be mentioned. When I arrived at UNLV there were no teaching awards. So, the first year students went to a joke shop and found a foot and and a half long plastic model tooth brush and painted it gold and on th" less...
