A Few Achievements:
I am presently serving my third stint as Math Coordinator in the department. I have made 20 state/regional presentations and 13 national presentations at conferences. I have been the Newsletter Editor and Webmaster for the Tennessee Association for Developmental Education for 7 years.
Some projects I've been associated with:
Along with Linda Clark, I have been collecting data on student study habits for several semesters.
Describe your teaching style:
I teach with an interactive lecture style. I expect involvement in and out of class by ever student. I make all of my notes available on my Website and provide review materials for each test.
What do you like most about teaching?
I like my students, and I like to see them succeed. It is very rewarding to help a student learn how to study, how to do what they thought they could not do.
What do you like least most about teaching?
I really do not like trying to teach students who are not in school to learn or who are disrespectful to others.
What do you expect from your students?
I expect them to come prepared to class for every meeting, to do all of their homework on time, to study several times per week, to use the math lab, and to ask for help when they need it. In short, I expect them to make time in their schedules to be a college student.
What should they expect from you?
They should expect clear presentations of material, help in class and out, and fair testing and grading.
Areas of interest outside the classroom:
I have a great family and love spending time with them. I enjoy teaching children at church and at our church adventure camp (caving, zip lines, climbing towers). I also enjoy riding my horse and taking care of our animals.
