Why I Love Teaching at Molloy College
I love teaching at Molloy College for many reasons. Foremost is the atmosphere of community amongst all. Faculty, staff and administrators work together consistently to support both students and each other. This is true within, and outside of, the school day. Additionally, there are many opportunities for entire families to engage in varied Molloy activities and service projects.
Areas of interest include motor speech disorders and typical and disordered language acquisition. Specifically, within these areas, I am interested in furthering the integration of evidence into clinical practice. An additional area of interest is the scholarship of teaching and learning.
What I am working on
Currently I am researching the use of Optotrak, an optical motion capture system, in measuring jaw movement during speech. An additional project examines models of language intervention in school age children.
Each student is an individual with specific strengths and weaknesses. It is the role of the educator not only to tailor education to the student but to help increase each student's awareness of his /her strengths and weaknesses and assist each student in finding a way to gain the most from his/her educational experiences. My goal is to facilitate a love of learning in each of my students.
