Short Bio

My main priority is the supervision of our Graduate Teaching Assistants. I train all students who will be teaching courses for our department on proper curriculum, delivery, and professional behavior. I also supervise the content and uniformity across the majority of our PHED courses; the most prominent being our Active Auburn class, and a few KINE courses, with KINE1100: Wellness being the largest of my responsibilities in this area. My ultimate goal is to provide all students who enroll in our courses a fair, fun, and educational experience they would be likely to recommend to their friends.
