After a short career as a political organizer, my life turned towards education. Upon receiving my Bachelor of Education degree I substitute taught a variety of subject areas from grades three to twelve in the Avalon East School District and Avalon West School District for one year. I was then able to secure a full-time position for the next four years at Discovery Collegiate in Bonavista, Newfoundland.
Upon leaving Discovery Collegiate to pursue my doctoral studies at the University of Georgia, I have had the opportunity to teach and co-teach a variety of courses at both the undergraduate an graduate level in the Department of Educational Psychology and Instructional Technology and the Department of Elementary and Social Studies Education. As a teacher I have been an instructor of record for six sections of one undergraduate course and as a co-teacher I have performed a variety of roles from simply providing technology support to grading assignments and providing instruction.
After finishing my Ph.D. I accepted a position as an Assistant Professor at Wayne State University, in the Instructional Department program, where I spent the first six years of my academic career. In August 2013 I joined the faculty at Sacred Heart University as the Director of Doctoral Studies for the Isabelle Farrington College of Education and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership.
