Biography 

As a Texan, I received my BA and MA from the University of Houston, and arrived in Baton Rouge August of 1979. I have been very active in using technology in my teaching. In 2002 I was the Rector for the Information Technology Residential College launched that year. As technology became more familiar, the need to adapt was clear, and as Rector I launched a second residential college, the Career Discovery Residential College, which is entering its fourth year. I enjoy developing new pedagogies using technology and teaching in smart classrooms. I also am devoted to empowering first year students in determining and confirming their career paths. I also enjoy teaching contemporary literature such as THE HUNGER GAMES and the Harry Potter novels. Part of my teaching philosophy is best stated by Alfred Mercier: "What we learn with pleasure, we never forget."
