What have you learned while teaching at B-W?:
A few people really can make a difference. During the 2004 Presidential Election our leadership students participated in a jail-based voter registration project and registered over 700 people to vote, many of whom had never voted before.
What inspired you to get into college teaching?:
I began my career teaching at a large research university, where faculty and students didnít interact. I wanted to make a difference in the world; here, at Baldwin-Wallace by working together with our students, I can do that.
Describe the ways in which you mentor students interested in your department:
Our students learn a great deal about leadership and are able to challenge their assumptions about human nature. They become more sophisticated in their thinking about current societal issues and potential solutions and begin to see themselves as change agents in their communities.
If you weren't teaching what would you be doing?:
Practicing public interest law or working for social change in a nonprofit agency.
What do students like best about your class?:
Learning about social justice issues such as poverty and how we, as citizens, might do something about it.
