In 1995, I completed a B.A. in English from the University of Arkansas. In 1998, I received an M.A. in English from Missouri State University. I have taught at OCCC--the best institution in the country--since the year 2000.
Since work experience demands collaboration, I like to create an active learning environment where students engage each other in academic discourse. Viewing my authority from a humble perspective, I function as the mentor, the facilitator, the coach, and, most importantly, the learner. Most students enrolling in my courses consider me sincere, honest, objective, open, and welcoming.
All courses, including math and science, are significant for our development as leaders in this culture, even if courses at first glance do not seem to relate to our career choices. Finally, since we live in a global environment, students should continually seek opportunities to engage in a variety of perspectives and cultures.
When not teaching, I write poetry and blog. My greatest passions include my children, coffee, music, film, and religious studies. When time permits, I play acoustic guitar.
