Day to Day

I work online at home and enjoy setting up my schedule for interactions with my doctoral students and other meetings. I engage in discussions in my courses. I read and review assignments in my courses and the dissertation papers for my mentees.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

A critical aspect of my collaborative nature is my experience teaching in k12 classrooms. I designed and developed student-centric problem-based learning environments and use that knowledge to develop the highly independent and also collaborative learning environment for my graduate students.

The Noise I Shed

"There are too many problems; money, lack of time, family responsibilities and restoring a home built in the 1800's, so you should stop taking classes. "

I would recommend that you push your goals in multiple areas of your life and include your degree completion as a part of the process-not outside of the process- of self-actualization. You can do it all.
