What do you like most about teaching/working at Saint Michael's College?

My favorite thing about working at Saint Michael's is the interaction I have with students. I never know what issue is going to walk through my door so I get to learn about wonderful individuals as well as explore hundreds of careers. I love that my job is really that of an investigator. I don’t have to know everything, but I have the fun of knowing where to find the answers.

What is your favorite class to teach, and why?

I regularly teach interviewing skills to students and it's my favorite workshop. I love the opportunity to provide students with valuable information and have fun with it too. It’s practical, it useful and I love to take the mystery out of it for students. I see their successes and I know how valuable the information is.
