This is my second year as a full time, tenure-track faculty member.
I have the privilege of being an assistant professor teaching in the Education Department both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
My favorite part of my position is teaching. While this is a favorite aspect, it is also a HUGE responsibility. I am influencing my profession. Thank goodness the education majors continue to ask great questions as they learn about pedagogical strategies. They hope to make a difference, and I know they will.
I love spending time with my family, which naturally includes cooking and trying out new recipes. I love to read though I have a hard time reading fiction. Consequently, I read mostly non-fiction e-books on my Kindle. Then there is that wonderful hobby called shopping.
Mimmo’s is a favorite for its food and atmosphere.
