In August 2012, I completed my PhD in Work and Human Resource Education with a specialization in Adult Education from the University of Minnesota. I've taught study skills and library research workshops for undergraduates and graduate students there since moving to Minnesota from Florida in 2006.
In my spare time, I work with teens as a life coach, helping them to prepare for college. I also work with teens in danger of dropping out of high school. Over the summer, I've spent some time helping Sophia grow by creating packets on study skills, scholarly research, citations and creative writing. I also review packets here at Sophia for academic soundness.
Feel free to say hello on facebook or send me an e-mail! I'm always happy to help.
Ummm, this task is a challenge for me because I am not used to writing my "bio." Problems abound: Do I start at the beginning (but where is the beginning?) Do is start now (but how does on define "now"--time? place? work?) Do is look at the epic formula and start in medias res (but what is the "middle" of my life, especially since I committed to my wife that I would live with her until age 94?) Let's just say that I am married, I have five daughters (aging from 29 to 17), I have my PhD in Rhetoric and Composition from UNC-Greensboro, I work as an academic dean and I am in the process of taking my first MOOC. I have been encouraging my faculty for 3-5 years to "flip their classes" with mixed results. However, once I have completed the various activities here, I will share this information with my 40 full time faculty to add another resources to the ones I have already shared with them.
