Coordinator, Center for the First-Year Exp.
It is my personal goal to get to know as many of you as I can through the various activities and events the Center hosts and the classes I teach. I want the Center to become your go-to safe space when you need help - we want to connect you to the people and resources on campus that will help you succeed! Stop in and visit us and let’s make it a great first year!
I love teaching AAA because it gives me the unique opportunity to become a part of the students’ stories and they a part of mine. Students grow a tremendous amount over the course of 15 weeks and to be involved in that transformation is truly a gift.
Success Tip: after the first few classes, take all of your syllabi and transfer assignment due dates, tests, quizzes, papers, readings, etc… into your planner. This will allow you to prioritize each day, week, and month so you aren’t scrambling to complete your work the night before.
