TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began my career teaching in the public school system. My husband was an officer in the Army, so we moved frequently. I taught in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Washington. The rest of my career has been teaching at the college level.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a firm believer in Alfred Mercier's quote: "What we learn with pleasure, we never forget." If a concept can be taught in a fun and exciting way, that's the way I teach it. I use this method in my classroom and in my workshops. The students/participants are engaged in activities which teach the skills necessary for success in school and in life.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have presented numerous workshops at conferences, elementary schools, high schools, colleges, and universities throughout the United States to train teachers how to use creativity in their classroom. Comments from participants have been overwhelmingly positive, and many teachers have been using my ideas in their classrooms with great success. Sample Comments: Professor Tichenor's presentation was truly outstanding: lively, stimulating, and inspiring. The central message was that learning can be fun and that students will learn better in a comfortable but challenging atmosphere. (participant) Professor Tichenor reminded me that teaching can be fun. I can't wait to try some of her ideas in class. Thanks for reminding me that teaching is exciting and an adventure. (participant) Professor Tichenor's presentation was enthusiastically received with over 100 in attendance. We traditionally have a "Back by Popular Demand" category for presentations, and hers will be in that area for next year's conference. (NADE Conference Co-Chair) The evaluations from participants who attended Professor Tichenor's sessions were remarkable and close to being the best of the entire conference! That is no small feat, considering the quality of the speakers, many nationally recognized. Your college is very fortunate to have faculty of the caliber of Professor Tichenor. (Conference Evaluation Committee Chair)
