I came to McDaniel College because I wanted to teach undergraduate students. I am passionate about my discipline and want to share that enthusiasm. Since 2004, I have engaged sociology majors in survey research about McDaniel College on topics of interest to them such as relationship status, political party affiliation, self esteem, and campus involvement, just to name a few. My classes engage students in active learning. In addition to working with survey data, my students participate in service learning with community partners.
