Teaching philosophy

Rachel Pauletti's teaching philosophy is to encourage learning by introducing students to the real-world applications of the material. She uses a variety of media and resources to demonstrate how important psychological concepts can be utilized to explain human behavior in consumer decision making, politics, education, parenting, and professional environments. It is Pauletti's goal that all students leave the classroom with an understanding of how concepts are important to them and how gaining a better understanding of the material can prepare them for success in both their professional and personal lives.
