DIGITAL MARKETING TEACHING TIPS
- Make every effort to learn each student’s name: it’s a gateway to better engagement.
- Start every class with something fun: I have “trivia of the day.”
- Spend the time to find recent examples of the things you teach to make the concepts real.
HOBBIES AND TALENTS
My hobbies or talents include reading and writing. I always have my nose in a book, usually non-fiction/historical. I love the outdoors, particularly the mountains (yet I live in Oklahoma — go figure). I escape to the Rockies every chance I get!
