I feel that I have come home to OT with this position in the OT department. After many years teaching continuing education courses for practicing OTs and PTs, I am pleased to be shaping the entry-level skills of OTs at SU. Teaching graduate students and teaching in a hybrid program are new challenges, as is brushing up on my Gross Anatomy and Neuroanatomy skills.
