About Lawrence


Bio

I have been a teacher for more than 40 years. I have taught students ranging from medical and dental residents to first graders. My primary emphasis has been teaching the anatomical sciences which include anatomy, neuroanatomy, histology, and embryology. I have taught them to all of the aforementioned students and to physical therapists, occupational therapists.

I have been a teacher for more than 40 years. I have taught students ranging from medical and dental residents to first graders. My primary emphasis has been teaching the anatomical sciences which include anatomy, neuroanatomy, histology, and embryology. I have taught them to all of the aforementioned students and to physical therapists, occupational therapists. But, some of the most fun I had was when I was asked by my wife to be to teach her second grade students. That was just incredible. Now, that I have retired, I am doing a different type of tutoring. I am reading to, and with, fourth graders at the Edmunds Elementary School in Burlington, Vermont. I am reading with a boy who is the son of one of the Lost Boys of the Sudan. It is truly an honor to be able to spend an hour with him every week. Well, that was before the Corona virus hit. Oh, and every week he beats me in a game of chess. He is really good.

There are almost 38 course hours per week and that doesn't include what the students must do on their own time. The effect on relationships can be devastating if they cannot manage their time and their psyche. We are there as part of the mechanism to help them.

I want to point out that although I have been teaching for a long period of time I am not stuck in the past. I was the first individual at UNLV to do an online course. When I taught at UNLV I did online lectures using a platform called Camtasia.

I simply love teaching. I have won numerous teaching awards. But two of them I think should be mentioned. When I arrived at UNLV there were no teaching awards. So, the first year students went to a joke shop and found a foot and and a half long plastic model tooth brush and painted it gold and on th
