Assistant Director, Academic Advancement Center
Hi, I am a academic skills instructor for the UC 110 course, Learning Strategies. In additional to material that we discuss in class relevant to Time Management, Note taking, Reading Textbooks, and preparing for exams, my students complete four e-mail assignments which are directly related to becoming a more successful student. My students appear to like learning more about how to communicate via the WWW, and these exercises provide me with an opportunity to get to know each of them a little better. I also work with students individually who want to learn more effective study techniques.
My higher education training began in Miami, Florida and continued here at OU once I relocate d to SE Ohio. My undergraduate degree is in elementary education; I taught in the early childhood education field for 10 years. I earned my MS in Human Development and Administration at OU in 1987. Prior to my joining the AAC staff, I taught and did administrative work in the OU College of Education. My first three years here at the AAC, I assisted Margaret Romoser with the Supplemental Instruction program. When I am not here at the AAC , I enjoy growing flowers, interacting with nature, and traveling.
