Institution: Bossier Parish Community College (LA)
Disciplines: Visual Art and Humanities
Why I teach: To acknowledge that each student holds wisdom and to connect that wisdom to their purpose, community, and the broader world. To develop nimble and flexible mindsets.
Why I am excited to attend the 2021 Virtual Annual Conference: I am most excited to learn about equity, promoting belongingness, podcasts, class culture, difficult conversations, interdisciplinary design, multidisciplinary partnerships, Socratic seminars, and what poetry can do for inclusion and success based verbiage.
Fun fact: I have traveled to Turkey and Belize on professional exchanges. My (current) favorite artist is Ebony G. Patterson. My love of movies caused me to create a film and culture humanities course.
