Anesa Hearst likes to keep the energy up while teaching at West Coast University-Dallas. To achieve that, she recommends asking questions to keep the class engaged, using active learning techniques and drinking lots of caffeinated beverages.
Hearst, who is also the chair of the general education science department at WCU-Dallas, shared that the most rewarding part about her job is seeing the students succeed and walk across the stage at graduation.
“I think teaching is probably one of the only professions where you create other professions,” she said, “and to help create a profession like nursing is really inspiring.”
