I have been teaching communication studies for a really long time. I literally stumbled into teaching many years ago in New Mexico when I was handed a graduate assistant teaching position one week before the start of classes. Another graduate student who was supposed to do the job quit at the last minute. Although I had no teaching experience, I took the job to help pay my school bills. Over 30 years later the scene has changed, but I'm still at it.
My education: B.S. in Speech- Lamar University (TX); M.A. in Communication- Eastern New Mexico University, and Ed. D. in Adult & Higher Education- Arizona State University.
