"As an experienced educator who shares a background in banking, real estate, and law, I am convinced that both my knowledge and experience are valuable in a business learning environment. Any time an individual chooses to advance his/her education, the benefits of doing so are immeasurable. His interest in continuing to learn serves to secure his future while, simultaneously, improving that of his family, the community in which he lives, as well as all of society. Becoming a lifelong learner is the key to staying ahead of the learning curve while also strengthening one's ability to contribute as a leader in a rapidly changing world. It is my firm belief that any student who makes a serious commitment to his education is making a lifetime investment working toward a goal which will always hold him in good stead."

Assistant Professor, Business Administration
MBA, Iona College BBA, Hofstra University AA, Nassau Community College

"In reviewing my business career it became obvious to me that much of my success was due to the efforts of several outstanding instructors. In forecasting the balance of my time on this side of the earth, I decided to pay back to others the good that had been done to me. Teaching became my late- in-life ministry. The College of Westchester was the first school to let me bring my abilities to those whose careers might benefit as had my own. The College also introduced me to many like-minded individuals who were already engaged in full-time teaching."

Assistant Chairperson and Assistant Professor, General Education
MFA, Columbia University BA, College of Mount St. Vincent

"Words - knowing them, understanding them, being able to put them together and be heard, understood and agreed with - are the ultimate power and the consummate tools of success.

I am an authoritative leader who facilitates the learning process so that students can maintain greater control over what they take away from each class session."

Assistant Professor, Business Administration
MA, BS, AS, Excelsior College BA, SUNY Purchase

"Every student that comes my way is like a melody that is not yet written, a soul mate you long to meet but haven't yet found, an undiscovered potential waiting to be given the opportunity to sing out to the world. My job as a college professor here at CW is to unlock melodies, so that all of our students can begin to discover the music beating within their hearts and minds. I tap all avenues of individualized, collaborative learning, both within and beyond the classroom, and when I send my students out into the world at graduation they are - to the best of my ability to train and prepare them - ready to be professional players in the orchestra of modern life."

Assistant Professor, General Education

My 20 years of teaching and facilitating have repeatedly demonstrated that higher education is an important journey of transformation and empowerment.

ABD, Walden University MPA, BS, Pace University Certification: Maryland Online Quality Matters Peer Reviewer and Online Facilitator

"The CW students I've had the privilege to teach have, in tangible and intangible ways, shaped me and my craft. The preeminent lesson I've derived from these experiences is that I am not their educator if I'm not also their student - willing to learn who they are and the ways I may optimally serve them. Each student is unique, each class is distinct from those before and those to come. In my experience at CW the one overarching constant is mutual work toward successful outcomes - the students' and mine."
