I love the opportunity I have at Elizabethtown to teach across the curriculum to both 1st semester students in all disciplines of engineering and 4th year students in Mechanical engineering. I enjoy being part of a great team of faculty at Elizabethtown looking to keep our curriculum evolving, taking advantage of new technologies and pedagogies to continuously enhance the program. I teach using a active/coaching style in the classroom focused on applying the material in the class together. I've published numerous papers on engineering teaching pedagogy and thoroughly enjoy mentoring students. I am the faculty mentor to the ASME student chapter, the college Cycling Club, and the Etown Cross Country team. I also mentor to individual students through the Emerging Scholar, Purposeful Life-Work, and Servant Leadership mentoring programs.
