Bio

One of the most important things I teach my students is to THINK because they often know more than they believe they do. In the courses I teach at Bainbridge State College, I always give critical thinking assignments and assist students to go beyond shallow interpretations. I sometimes use quotations such as, "If you fly your plane into the mountain, you don't get to blame the mountain." Such quotations aid students in moving away from concrete thinking.

One of the most important things I teach my students is to THINK because they often know more than they believe they do. In the courses I teach at Bainbridge State College, I always give critical thinking assignments and assist students to go beyond shallow interpretations. I sometimes use quotations such as, "If you fly your plane into the mountain, you don't get to blame the mountain." Such quotations aid students in moving away from concrete thinking.

I find that my students are all too likely to write using their own colloquial or text-messaging language. I explain to them that "correct" and "incorrect" are not appropriate labels to apply to the way they speak and write. Within family and friend groups casual conversation will include colloquialisms, and there is nothing wrong with this. However, there is a difference between our cultural colloquial language and what is known as Standard English. I help my students understand the need for Standard English in educational and professional situations. And then I help them grasp how to write a sentence, a paragraph, a paper using correct subject/verb agreement, using complete sentences, ensuring that pronouns are in agreement with the nouns to which they refer back.

I find that my students do better in whatever course they are studying if they can first grasp the concept being taught. After that, it is easier to assimilate the details.

Public Speaking

I have taught part-time at Bainbridge State College for seven years. Included in the courses which I have taught are English, Human. Communications, and Introduction to Psychology. I enjoy finding ways to reach a student by providing information within the context of his or her everyday experience. The Human Communications course is heavily weighted toward public speaking. Required for the semester are 10 impromptus, one speech of introduction, one speech to inform, and one speech to persuade. I have taught this course every semester (including summer) for the past five years.
