Welcome to Marketing!
As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, I'm excited to begin my twentieth year at ACTC. I have both a bachelor's degree (1992) and a master’s degree (1994) in business from Clemson University as well as a master’s degree in education (2009) from Furman University. Teaching is a second career for me as I worked in business and industry for ten years prior to teaching.
I believe students learn best by "doing." All of my classes are project-based with a strong emphasis on the development of both the hard skills and soft skills students need for success in college and careers. Students take an active role in learning and demonstrate their mastery of course competencies through performance tasks, projects, simulations, and presentations (rather than tests). When possible, I try to give students voice and choice in many of their projects. Generally, students will not be assigned homework. Final exams have been replaced by either printed or digital portfolios. I want my students to feel challenged, supported, valued, respected, and connected in my classes.
I'm looking forward to a great school year. Contact me with any questions or concerns.
