Favorite Campus Spot
I love the area of campus near McKenny, especially the fountain. It reminds me of when I was a student and McKenny was the union. A jazz trio used to play there once a week. I really enjoyed that.
I’m drawn to Wonder Woman and because I see autonomous strength and critical thinking in one woman. So I would want my superpower to be an extension of Wonder Woman’s ability to view society in a multifaceted way; critical but compassionate, autonomous and independent.
The students always inspire me to learn more, create more classes. Their viewpoints inspire me to create new courses.
From April to December, I drive Model T cars at Greenfield Village. I get to educate guests about the history and culture of the Model T.
Next Big Goal
That is something I have been asking myself since the beginning of the year. I want to be able to teach gender and sexuality from a more complex point of view; to teach my classes in a more robust way.
