Center for Academic Success
My work in the Center for Academic Success is really three-fold. I teach two sections of UNIC 117 Academic Well-Being each term, I meet with students one-on-one for academic counseling, and I provide support for academic procedures (leaves of absence, withdrawals, incompletes). I am also the proud mentor of Posse 14. I am a formerly low income and first generation student, and I chair a faculty/staff group on campus called LIFT UP (Low Income First-gen Talent Unpacking Privilege).
I came to Lawrence from Arizona State University where I designed and taught success classes, provided individualized support to students, and trained faculty. I also taught first-year composition, American literature, and British literature courses.
What fills my pitcher? In all honesty, working with students in or out of the classroom fills my pitcher. But I also have a number of other strategies to stay recharged. I love to spend time with members of my extended family. (Ask me about our new grandson!) I also read--a lot! (Got any recommendations?) And I find puttering around my kitchen re-centers me. (Cooking, baking, preserving, I like it all.) I also have two cats who make me laugh on a regular basis and who never miss the chance to join a Zoom call.
