Dr. Sasiadek’s teaching philosophy consists of three main elements: students, commitment, and motivation. “I believe that students come first; they are the reason I am teaching. Each student comes to school to pursue a degree for various reasons. I am one of many instructors they will meet and my hope is that, not only do they walk away with an education and higher level of knowledge in the subject, but also that as they move forward in their careers, they will be able to reflect back on their education and the lessons that were discussed and learned.” Dr. Sasiadek lives with her daughter in Tucson, AZ. She has three Shi Tzus and one cat, and enjoys swimming, biking, opera and fine dining.
