In my current position as a Professor of Marketing I teach a broad range of Marketing classes. I also coordinate the open campus Marketing and Advertising courses, I provide students with advising services, participate in instructional program development, serve on college committees, participate in professional development, mentor new faculty, and train them in teaching techniques. As the Department Chair, I provide leadership in developing, evaluating and maintaining a curriculum that responds to local workforce and community needs.
Why do I teach? As a teacher my task is to help students discover and develop their own talents. There must be a proper balance between education for both quality and quantity of life. I accomplish this by preparing my students to work in professions in which technical knowledge is increasing at an exponential rate and thinking skills are as important as technical ones. It is never my intention to make my students feel as though I have power over them, rather power with them. We have a partnership. The students' success is my success therefore; I am in a unique position of succeeding many times over through each of my student's successes.
