I am a part-time professor of Physical Geography and Human Geography at the college level, and I love it! I've taught the lecture and labs at my current place of employment for five years in addition teaching Earth Science at Cal State Northridge. I earned a Master's Degree in Geography from California State University, Northridge, in 2006. I attend geography conferences on annual basis which extends my knowledge and experience of the physical environment.
My student evaluations have always been very high. Some of the comments students have made include: "One of the best teachers I've had here at VC." and "This is my second class with Professor Pattie, and I really enjoy her instruction. She knows the subject (geography) really well, her passion for subject shines through in her lectures. She is also a very understanding and helpful professor. I always feel comfortable asking questions and satisfied with her answers. She is also extremely prompt to responding to emails, even on the weekend." and "I really feel like I've learned a lot in her class." and, lastly: "Pattie is so Kind! I love how much she cares about the class subject & students! Very interesting teacher. I love how she has traveled so much and can give first hand experience on the subject."
I have also taught MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), the Windows Operating System and research on the internet at the college and university level. I use Word, Excel & PowerPoint on a daily basis in my lessons.
