   EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND
  Master of Arts in English Linguistics, Florida International University, 1990
Bachelor of Arts in English, Florida International University, 1988
   
   EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
 
I believe that education is a give and take between instructor and student.  My responsibility is to present information, facilitate thought, and inspire you to work to the best of your abilities.  I will give you lessons, activities, and assignments that help you achieve those goals.

Your responsibility is to be in class for those lessons, participate in those activities, and complete those assignments.  This is not a guarantee that you will pass the class, but it is a guarantee that your grade will truly reflect your best effort in the class.

   Plagiarism
 
Plagiarism Information for Faculty and Students
I am deeply concerned with the problem of academic dishonesty in the modern information age.  Therefore, I occasionally give workshops for faculty to help them identify, deal with, and most importantly, prevent students from turning in work that is not their own.  Click here for some information on how teachers can catch plagiarism.

 

   
   INTERESTS
 
I enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing, bird watching, and other outdoor activities.  I enjoy traveling, especially road trips to historical sites.  I am a Civil War buff, and I like old movies and Classic Rock music.
