What year did you start teaching at AU


Why teach at AU?

Anderson University provides an environment for our students that allows faculty to openly engage in critical conversations about faith within the context of student learning. Often times in today's society the classroom has been a restricted area where faith and Christian living are not allowed. Here at AU rather than restricting faith and learning, we are encouraged to integrate the two which allows our students to have those conversations about their Christian walk within the context of their career paths.

What do you find most enjoyable about working at Anderson University?

The students and faculty here at AU are extremely polite and friendly! It's hard to have a bad day around such a positive community.

How would you describe your classes to someone who has never attended one?

Practical, students learn in a variety of different ways so as I cover content I try to offer students a variety of different learning activities that allow them to master the content in a way that is meaningful to them.
