Assistant Professor, Reading
What is the best part about being an MSU Billings faculty member?
The best part is the people I work with. Hands down. That is from the staff to the faculty to the students I work with. There’s wonderful, caring, relationships that really support a learning environment.
Why did you choose to do what you do? How did you get here?
I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Montana Western, and I got my teaching degree there. And then, I went up to Peace Corps, and after Peace Corps, I came back and I moved to Minnesota, and I got my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Minnesota State University Moorhead , and I worked in the Moorhead Public School there for a while and realized that I wanted to continue my education. So I went to the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities and I got my Ph.D. in Critical Literacy English Education. And I came back to Montana to MSUB.
