"There is nothing better than waking up early in the morning and driving to Canyon, knowing that I can be part of a student's life and make a difference in their journey. I have always enjoyed learning and I strive to give my students that same enjoyment from learning. Passion is a key ingredient to life... Let's be proud to be Buffs!!"

"I have come full circle! I am a WTAMU alumni and being able to teach students here is an amazing experience. I love seeing their excitement and enjoy their sense of adventure as they experience college life for the first time. What a gift to be part of their journey as a college student."

"Three decades in countless classrooms teaching a multitude of diverse subjects to students ranging in age from 2 to 62 has blessed me with the education of a lifetime. Always learning more from my students than the lessons being taught from the textbooks, I am passionate about making classroom learning a positive and enjoyable experience. My parents instilled in me the importance of getting a college education from a very young age and have continuously supported me throughout my lengthy educational career. Now in their late eighties, they are very proud and thrilled that I have the opportunity to teach at my alma mater where I earned my Education and Masters in Communication degrees, as am I. I agree with Paul J. Meyer who once said, 'Communication - the human connection - is the key to personal and career success.' Let our success begin now!!!"

"I'm a fellow communicator, an avid storyteller, and a passionate educator. I enjoy communication because I believe that it is fundamental to the human experience. i graduated from the communication master's program at WTAMU where I enjoyed researching new media, public relations, and storytelling. I want the lessons that I teach to reach further than edeucational goals. I want students to feel that they can control the course of their lives, that how they treat people matters, and that they have the power to make a positive impact in our world."
