Looking back at my own learning experiences as a student at a large research institution, I greatly value the teachers that were not only research-oriented, but also student-oriented. As a Communication Lecturer at TAMU, I like to pull from student experiences to develop courses that are challenging, creative, and have an intercultural focus. Having taught in Mexico, China, and Costa Rica, I am aware of the needs and interests of a culturally diverse student body.
An intercultural communication professor changed my life in undergrad. Now that I am that professor, I strive to do the same for my students.
