About Me: 

I teach Women's Studies at Clark College, a community college in Vancouver, Washington. One of the courses I teach is Women Around the World. I use online materials for the course, including World Pulse, Imagining Ourselves (an online exhibit of the International Museum of Women), United Nations sites such as UNIFEM, UNFPA, UNICEF; and a number of NGOs (like Women to Women International). I am looking for ways to help the learners in my class make global connections; personally, politically, emotionally, and culturally.

My Passions: 
Teaching and learning, natural history, sustainability, hiking, canoeing
My Challenges: 
Teaching and learning
My Vision for the Future: 
Technology that connects us, rather than divides us
My Areas of Expertise: 
Women's Studies, feminist theory, analyses of social power dynamics
