Faculty Perspective

I am excited to be returning to the University of Dayton. I firmly believe that UD is committed to excellence in education, as I have witnessed it firsthand. My experience as an adjunct allowed me to work with diverse student populations, which helped shape and inform my teaching style. I look forward to adding to these experiences as I teach in the tight-knit UD community.
