Skye’s great passion is teaching. Skye enjoys making learning fun and she believes that there is no wrong way to learn, as long as learning is occurring. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing her students experience “ah-ha moments” when the students are fully understanding a difficult subject for the first time. Skye’s goals and desires for the future are to continue teaching while she completes her master’s degree, and go on to greatly impact the lives of her students and patients for years and years to come.
One of Skye’s nursing students, Cristal Frazier, had this to say about her “Teacher Skye is one in a million. Not only is she a caring nurse, she is a phenomenal instructor. She always keeps the classroom open to discussions and allows us to ask any questions we might have. She has a way of answering our questions that really lives up to the saying that there is never a stupid question. She makes sure to go through the material so we understand it completely. As many know, nursing school can be very stressful, but Skye knows how to balance a serious learning environment along with letting us be ourselves and joke around at times. Skye as a teacher is an all-around amazing person and we are so lucky to have her. Speaking for all of her students, having her as an instructor makes nursing school a little easier. We love you Teacher Skye! Thank you for always taking the extra mile to ensure we receive the best education so that one day we can become an extraordinary nurse like you!”

She is fully dedicated to her students’ success and works with each and every student along their nursing school journey to make their dreams come true. Respected by her colleagues and students, Skye is always willing to go above and beyond and is a true team player. Her passion for nursing education is evident and her can-do attitude makes her an exemplary faculty member.
