Teaching Philosophy

Ms. Nagle believes teaching is more about learning.  Instructors must determine how students best absorb the material and endeavor to deliver it in that way.  Over the last 16 years, technology has advanced exponentially and has changed not only how students learn, but how society operates as a whole.  Ms. Nagle has always been eager to adapt to new methodology while keeping the principles of communication and business etiquette, which never change, at the forefront.
