Professor Naylor has been passionate about imparting the knowledge she has to any student in her class. She has taught in the clinical setting as a preceptor on the bench, training new staff and students in the final year of their CLS program. She has learned that you have to engage the students in order to keep them interested and have the students work together in order to foster teamwork which has the added advantage of helping them learn the material.
