What can a student expect when taking one of your classes?
Any student in my courses will have the opportunity to learn by reading, writing and interacting with the material.
What excites you about teaching at Marietta College?
The material available to me for use in the classroom is predictable but also has variety. I feel the same way about the students in my classes… a variety of predictable.
When you aren’t teaching, what other activities do you enjoy?
Actually I enjoy watching the students in their ‘other activities’ like sports and music. Also, I am the faculty advisor for a student organization where field trips are a common activity. Other than that I enjoy flea markets and hiking.
Do you prefer flipping through the pages of a book or an e-book?
Most definitely I prefer turning the pages with my own fingers.
What is your favorite location on campus and why?
The Geology Annex is my favorite location on campus because it is a dinosaur hangout.
