I started teaching at Jamestown Community College in 1984 as an adjunct instructor. In 1986 I became a full-time instructor of Business and Economics. I have enjoyed being part of the JCC faculty and my love of teaching has been rewarded with both the President’s Award and the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Over the years I have been fortunate to enhance my experiences and classroom skills by attending different conferences. Of note, I spent two weeks studying and traveling in China, have participated in several European Union simulations held in the U.S. and Europe, and learned more about the connections between history and economics in historic Williamsburg, Virginia.
Through my experiences with Educational Testing Services and the College Board, I have graded AP (Advanced Placement) exams in Macroeconomics and helped develop CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) exams in both Macroeconomics and Microeconomics.
Outside of the classroom my community involvement includes chairing the City of Jamestown Planning Commission and membership on both of the boards for the Jamestown Urban Renewal Agency and the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities.
I teach a wide array of courses in both business and economics; perhaps I will have you in one of my classes someday.
