- About SCAD
"While in graduate school, I had the opportunity to teach several laboratories and really enjoyed the experience. I developed a great passion for teaching and hoped to find a place to teach structural concepts where the focus would be on the students and not on the professors' research. I had several experiences with professors in school that were clearly more interested in their work outside of the classroom than in making sure the students really understood what they were teaching. This drove me to become a professor, and particularly one who taught for the joy of breaking concepts down and helping students learn. Because of this, the focus on teaching at SCAD makes it the perfect place for me."
