Philosophy of teaching
In the context of understanding the theories and concepts presented in a course, I want students to be able to think critically, to reason analytically, and to be able to present their ideas. My goal is to challenge students with projects, cases, and real-world examples that allow for creative interpretations and allow students to learn by doing. I believe that these experiential exercises not only support learning the theories and concepts but, more importantly, provide opportunities to develop the core skills that will be useful in work and in graduate school.
Special areas of expertise or research interests
Currently, my areas of interest include working with not-for-profits in the areas of strategic planning and fundraising. In addition to this, I work with and invest in small and medium size businesses. I serve and have served on the boards of numerous not-for-profit and for-profit organizations. Lastly, I am an elected representative to Kearsarge Regional School Board.
Although my handicap does not show it, I am an avid golfer. In addition to golf, I enjoy scuba diving, though I am not one to dive in New England – it’s too cold. Since one can’t golf or dive all year long and live in New Hampshire, I enjoy cooking, and my favorite TV show is Iron Chef America.
I have been teaching at New England College for over a decade. Originally, I signed on to teach primarily marketing courses, but over the years I have branched out into related areas, including Sport and Recreation Courses.
