Learning, like research, does not occur within the confines of the classroom or faculty office. From mentoring Native college students through KONIAG Education Foundation to teaching to students at Florida State University, Florida A&M University, Tallahassee Community College, and University of Northern Iowa, I view learning as a process occurring both inside and outside the classroom, a decision to see the world with new eyes. My courses encourage students to explore their world(s), seeing and thinking differently than their norm, through assignments capturing images and writing essays analyzing the place and power religion around them; connecting historical events, figures, and movements to current events; applying course content in service to the community; and, sharing what they’ve learned with the public.
