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. In September 2016 I accepted a position as an Associate Professor of Instructional Design for the College of Education and Health Services at Touro University California.
