What do you like about teaching at Lasell College?
"One of the best things about teaching at a small college like Lasell is the small class size, which gives the students a chance to interact directly with the faculty. Having been a student at both a small college and a large university, I know what an advantage this is. As a faculty member, I know all of my students by name, and they know they can stop in my office to see me any time. This is a great atmosphere for learning. After more than two decades of college teaching, I am particularly interested in developing techniques for successful teaching and experimenting with new ideas and methodologies in the classroom."
