Let's Stay Connected

Interaction is the heart of humanizing online education! There are lots of opportunities to interact with me. However, if you need to reach out directly for any reason, I am here for you! Please use the information below to select the best way to reach me.

My policy is to maintain communication on a weekly basis. Responses in all forums can be expected within a 48-hour period, Monday – Friday (excluding holidays). If you don't hear back in the respected time, assume I did not receive your email and resend it.  Sunday's are set aside for family time.

Avoid using your cell phone when you're in a public place. Wait until you're home & have thoroughly washed your hands.

Messages of personal content can be sent directly through the Canvas Inbox. I will respond within 48 hours, Monday-Friday, excluding holidays and Sundays. Those days are meant to be spent with family. Please include your name, the course you are in, and specific information that relates to your question.

Student Lounge

Consider this a Q & A Forum within your Canvas course. This a space to connect with your peers, ask questions, and clarify instructions. It is designed for you to put your feet up and share in peer fellowship while keeping those guiding principles in mind. 

Please note, this is a public forum and can be seen by the entire class. Personal questions should be sent directly to me via the Canvas inbox
