Campus Address: Caudell Hall 363
M.S.W., Washington University
I joined the faculty in July, 1995 while working at various local agencies as a supervisor and administrator. I am semi re-tired and work only at Buffalo State.
I teach Field Seminar, Introduction to Social Work, Group Work, Non-Profit Organizations and any other courses to which the chairperson assigns me. I have extensive training in group work and managing non profit organizations and use a Socratic, small group approach to teaching.
As an adjunct, I am not required to do research. However, I am a great believer that a strong sense of history and knowledge of current events are essential in both teaching and learning. My aim as a professor is to produce students who are both passionate and well versed about social work as a profession.
