||I am an adjunct faculty member who has been teaching at MC since 2004. I began working in high school. I typically teach Business Law, MG 101 (principles of management) and MG 103 (marketing) online. I have taught BA 101 as a blended course. While I'd like to see you, I love teaching online because it can be done at any time, in any locale, etc. I can also do it in pieces. And while I don't see you, this course is so interactive, that we all get a good sense of each others values and perspectives, possibly more so than if we met each other on a face-to-face basis first.
I believe in applicable skills that transcend a course. They include reading, writing, critical thinking, and communication. I respect the diversity of people and I value the microcosm of society that these courses become. Thus while you will develop a body of knowledge on the subject, you will also practice these skills which affect your ability to function and succeed in the world.
I have a bachelor's degree in art history with a specialization in architecture; a M.S. and an education specialist (Ed.S) degree in counseling and personnel servces (from SUNY Albany), an MBA with a specialization in marketing (from Pace University); 15 credits (in a doctoral program from Columbia University) in organizational behavior and law; and the bulk of my coursework for a Ph.D. in higher ed. policy from UMCP.
My office is in the Gaithersburg Business and Training Center at 12 S. Summit Avenue, Gaithersburg, Suite 444, and I am currently the Acting Instructional Dean for Community Education and Extended Learning Services, Workforce Development and Continuing Education, at Montgomery College. I've also taught the equivalent of MG 101 as a 300 level course at Pace University, done programs and presentations for the FBI, the Graduate Management Admissions Council, and the Law School Admissions Council. ...and I spent five years working in a grocery store!:)
