What can a student expect when taking one of your classes?

To read, work hard and have fun.

What excites you about teaching at Marietta College?

The excitement and satisfaction of teaching and learning with such bright, enthusiastic students.

When you aren’t teaching, what other activities do you enjoy?

Attending MC athletic and music events, cross stitching, and working with my antique postcards/booth at The Antique Gallery.

Do you prefer flipping through the pages of a book or an e-book?

I love flipping the pages of a book, especially children’s literature, because the experience is richer.

What is your favorite location on campus and why?

The Anderson Hancock Planetarium because it is a source of wonder and inspiration, the Phi Beta Kappa clock because it is a great place to meet people, and the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center so that I can work on staying fit and healthy.

What is your favorite Marietta College event?

Graduation. It is both sad and happy. It allows us to reflect on the successes of our students while having to say good-bye.
