"2018 marks my 25th year teaching others," Lemons-Ryhal says. "My teaching philosophy is grounded in the fact that change is inevitable. Students must understand theory, and the importance of having a solid foundation grounded in facts, while knowing they must evolve and become lifelong learners to survive and thrive in today's real estate world. As an instructor, I utilize new and innovative tools to convey messages, whether oral, visual, or tactical. Through innovative, real-time tools, students are allowed to think beyond conventional theories and explore problems as they arise."
