ASSISTANT PROFESSOR of TEACHING/COORDINATOR OF UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES and COMM 2381
With 18 years of teaching experience, most at the Community College level where I was the Co-Chair of the Department of Theater and Speech at Itawamba Community College, I joined the University of Memphis faculty in 2007. I've worked most closely with our General Education course, COMM 2381, developing and piloting it as a fully online course, a hybrid course and a traditional face to face offering. The challenge of developing and presenting messages that resonate with audiences with clarity and integrity across diverse settings and using technology skillfully remains as engaging as ever. I serve as an Undergraduate advisor and assist M.A. committees.
