Scholarly and Professional Achievements

I am an experienced and innovative educator who is passionate about addressing the needs of 21st-century students. As the chair of the Humanities department and interim chair of the English department at Piedmont Technical College, I worked closely with faculty to improve student outcomes and bring experiential learning into program curricula. I encourage faculty to be creative and flexible in their teaching methods in ways that benefit students. I have worked extensively with online course design and facilitation, online assessment, and online program review.  I have also received numerous recognitions for my work with distance learning programs and Work Ethics Skills, a campus-wide initiative to promote soft skills at Piedmont Technical College.
