"You asked us to question our materials, our experiences, and each other. You served as an example being real and raw and honest about your thoughts and history. The first supplemental reading described how in a world that was different fire ladders could be made for small people. I think if more people took your class we could have small ladders."
-Brent Berbecker, former Psychology of Women Student
My journey as a professor, as a teacher and a mentor, has been like the Beatles' proverbial long and winding road. I like to think I've come a long way from that first August when I sat with my doctoral advisor reviewing students evaluations from my first course as the instructor of record.
Following is a list of the current courses in my repertoire (although I’m always up for the challenge of developing and teaching something new).
Following is a small sample of poetry produced over the past decade of my teaching. These are my students' own take-aways, in their words the single most important lesson of the semester from their time with me.
