My doctorate is in Instructional Technology, Ed.D. and scholarly interests include: differentiation for student success, using technology to enhance the teaching and learning experience, the neuroscience of learning, and diffusion of innovation/change theory. Teaching at Fresno Pacific provides the unique opportunity to not only teach content, but to integrate faith with my discipline. Conversations with students can include sharing who Christ is in my life and why I view teaching as a calling... a vocation that can make a difference in the lives of students.
