Looking forward to learning more!

I am looking forward to teaching my two classes at Rider University this semester (COM107 Persuasive Writing for the Media and COM106 Writing for the Communication Professions). I’m anxious to meet my students — and happy to see some familiar names on my roster, students who’ve taken classes with me in the past.

But I’m looking forward to the start of another semester for other reasons, too…

Since I was a kid, I’ve always looked forward to those “first days of school” — and all the anticipation they offered. Lots of questions jumped around in my head: “Who will I meet?”“What will I learn?”“What are the next steps?…” I’ve always loved school (my brothers always thought I was weird because of this…) and learning. And, for me, this “love” continues today — but I’m the teacher now! 😉

Teacher or not, I still consider myself a life-long learner. Each semester we do things differently in my classes, even when I’m teaching the same course from semester to semester. The courses cover the same concepts, but the applications and assignments are “up-to-the-minute” and sometimes change from one semester to the next.

My students and I learn by doing things together in our classes and online: I share what I learn through my own business and through working with my clients and collaborators.  We try to keep up with the ever-changing technology and communication industries. I hope they’re looking forward to learning more this semester just as much as I am!

I’ll keep you posted to let you know how we’re doing. In the meantime, let us know if you’re a “life-long learner” like me — and please tell us why you like to learn more, too! Thanks for reading!

Until next time, take care!
