TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Twenty years college (open-access community college, four year college, and university) teaching in political science (American Government, State Local Government), public policy (Health Policy, Public Administration, Personnel, Public Policy, Grant-Writing, and Public Budget/Finance). I currently teach as a volunteer for a local non-profit (Latina Women's League) a six week U.S. Citizenship course, to assist adult learners to pass the written, verbal, and comprehension U.S. Citizenship test. Included in my store (as of March 2018) are the six individual class lessons (power point, and links to brief videos in public domain). A mini-sample of lesson one is available as a free download. My Citizenship students are adult learning ranging in age from 21 to 81, from Latin and South American countries, Asian, European, and African nations, and Great Britain. It is my hope that the newly posted U.S. Citizenship materials/lessons might provide some income to purchase supplies/books/and equipment for the non-profit in support of this important program. My college students range from age(s) 14 to mid sixties retirees and returning service veterans. About one third of my current students are 11th and 12th grade high school students in dual-enrollment, taking my college courses.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use technology, power point--often linked to brief high quality publicly accessible video clips, discussion, role-playing simulations in class, supervised computer based simulations in classroom labs. Small group projects, as well as traditional exams and essays.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Three time nominated finalist for Teacher of the Year (2011, 2016 Santa Fe College) and 2002 (James Madison University). Have received numerous awards for involvement in student services, and as advisor to student conduct boards.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I hold a State 6-12 grades Social Science certificate of eligibility (teaching), Bachelors (religion), Masters (Public policy/administration), Graduate certificate in Gender Studies, and PhD (Political Science).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I first heard of TpT on TV (Steve Harvey Show) fall 2012. I am currently a newly retired full Professor of Political science, working again part-time at my former college, an open-enrollment four year (formerly community) college which was ranked top in the nation by the PEW Corporation 2014-2016. My semester contracts depend on student enrollment (down considerably in this economy). I originally thought about tutoring, consulting, or exam administration ... but my love is teaching. Having some control over and 'stabilizing' my income through TpT seems perfect, as my husband is approaching retirement and our income will be more than halved. I am always exchanging ancillaries with colleagues, even those for whom I am on occasion a long-term substitute. I have written for pay ancillaries for both Houghton Mifflin, and a national study-guide for another major publisher. Somehow, teachers supporting each other, makes so much more sense, than selling your creative efforts to a national corporation to market. Having access to TpT products, and reading some of the supportive ideas/chats, I think access to others' creative work (would be wonderful for my teaching). My students and I have benefited from materials I have purchased from TpT. It has provided me a supportive 'community' of dedicated creative colleagues. The TpT community has also provided some of the professional development options, our (FL) teaching budgets' have long since ago cut from our colleges and secondary schools. I welcome your constructive feedback, comments and suggestions on my work, and if you would like updates and revisions on products please follow me.
