YOUR PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING:

My goal is for every class I teach to create a collaborative, inclusive, positive, and exciting learning environment where all students become proficient in the subject matter while at the same time significantly improving their skills as critical thinkers, self-teachers, and life-long learners.

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO TEACH?

I developed an interest in teaching while attending college. Many of my professors had such a positive influence on me and provided incredibly valuable guidance and direction as I pursued a career in policing. When I retired from law enforcement after more than three decades of service, I wanted to bring my knowledge and experience into the classroom and do my best to educate and mentor students today, as my professors did for me when I was a student.

CREDENTIALS/CAREER PATH

Thirty-four years experience in local law enforcement at all organizational levels
Twenty-five years as a part-time law enforcement trainer
Fifteen years as a part-time adjunct University instructor here at Southeast

PROFESSIONAL HIGHLIGHT

Retiring from the field of law enforcement after 34 years of service, the last seven of which were as Chief of Police; and, after retirement, earning my Doctorate Degree and teaching at Southeast.

AWARD/HONOR/RECOGNITION

Outstanding teaching award – 2017

BEST ADVICE FOR STUDENTS
