"I love teaching! The students are my number one priority and I want them to feel like they have a mentor and a resource. It’s exciting to help students achieve their career goal of becoming an occupational therapy practitioner. I love the fact that as a teacher I have the ability to impact the students’ lives and they can go on and impact other people’s lives in a positive way. I love watching students grow professionally and develop a love and enthusiasm for the profession of Occupational Therapy!" - Dr. Carolyn Murphy, Associate Professor & MOT Coordinator, School of Health Professions, College of Health Sciences.
