I have been teaching economics for approximately 12 years with Cuesta Community College, Taft Community College and Porterville College. The majority of my teaching has been conducted online. When I started teaching online it was like living in the Wild West, no rules, no expectations, no one sure what they were doing. Times have changed, for the better! I am earned my doctoral degree in education. Specifically, I examined student loan debt, the value of education and its impact on Kern County and the individual.
Related Pedagogical Projects
I feel as though I have been immersed in pedagogical projects for the last decade. The investigation into student success, retention and quality education in the various realms of education (online, face-to-face, hybrid, seminar, etc) are always at the forefront of learning objectives. I have attended a number of conferences, trainings, webinars, lectures on the multitude of teaching improvement methods. I am currently apart of a year long project with the San Francisco Federal Reserve as part of an Educational Advisory Group. I love collaboration and I am looking forward to learning from all of you!
