Background

Summary

I am a lifelong learner and educator committed to teaching through the use of emergent technologies and current models of best practice. Taking into consideration how students learn, grow, communicate, express themselves, and utilize their abilities in order to achieve success is vital to making positive student-teacher connections. By making these connections, I enable my students to apply elements from their own lives to new concepts and experience authentic, meaningful learning.

Adolescence is a pivotal time for cognitive and personal development. Whether students learn through concrete examples or through critical thinking, they are challenged to utilize hands-on exercises and group work to help understand, master, practice, and work through critical concepts in my class; utilizing one another for growth. I provide foundational support to each individual while challenging them to reach toward new concepts. By providing a safe environment as they make important choices about their personal identities, students feel free to grow and develop as they cultivate new knowledge.

In this safe environment, student motivation is bolstered with freedom to choose, communicate, and express ideas without criticism. As motivation is different for each student, careful attention is paid to their personal influences, enabling me to adapt and teach through differentiated instruction. Class discussions, assignments, and the prompt informational feedback that I give to each individual helps them recognize that their efforts in my class will lead to an improvement in critical skills that are important in achieving success with their goals and their future. Through these motivational practices, students connect real meaning to their reading and essays in a classroom where relevant and diverse ideas are shared and respected between students.

Sex, Buds, and Rock N’ Roll: Images of American Freedom and Sexuality in Budweiser’s Television Advertisement, “Anticipation”

Indiana University South Bend Undergraduate Research Journal
May 2012

During a time of economic uncertainty in the U.S., beer giant Budweiser offers a unifying rallying cry to the public with their advertisement, “Anticipation.” This video text serves as a form of reassurance of a collective identity to viewers while aligning itself with images of rebuilding a country that has been downtrodden. The collage of images set to a quickening musical and visual pace induces viewers into contemplating their identities as Americans. But, between the lines, the video text reveals gender stereotypes depicting women as creatures of intimate sexuality and servitude, deliberately obscuring the distinction between what it means to be a contributing member of contemporary American society or merely a caricaturized image of gender synthesized by an advertising agency.
