Background InformationI've been teaching economics at Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) in Albuquerque since 2001. Prior to coming to New Mexico I completed the coursework and comprehensive exams in the PhD program at UT Austin. When I spotted an available teaching job in New Mexico, I left with a Master's degree. I've always found teaching more rewarding than research.
In addition to the usual lower-division offerings of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, I've recently added an Environmental Economics class to the mix. I've developed an outcomes-based Microeconomics class, where students must demonstrate mastery of 8 key skills in order to complete the class. At the state level, I chair a committee of faculty from across New Mexico that reviews Social & Behavioral Science courses for inclusion into the New Mexico Common Core.
