What are your goals as a teacher at Kaskaskia College? My goals as an instructor is to challenge students to inspire students to learn, discover their career pathway, and pursue their dreams. Many students begin their college career unsure of themselves and their direction, and it is so inspiring to ride along with them as they discover their passions and achieve success.
What did you do before you began teaching at Kaskaskia College? Before coming to KC, I was Recruitment Coordinator and Academic Advisor at Black Hawk East in Kewanee, IL. Prior to that, I spent time as a Herdsman at a 1200 cow dairy near Peoria, IL; and was a Feed Sales Specialist with a Land-O-Lakes affiliated company in St. Johns, MI.
