Advice to Incoming Students
Balance your academic life and your social life so that you do well in classes but also have time to make friends.
Why I Came to Taylor
I came to Taylor University after teaching at two other universities in order to focus on teaching in a smaller setting. I enjoy the interaction with the students and my colleagues in the education department, especially supervising student teachers and advising.
I enjoy reading fiction and belong to a reading group that meets every month. I enjoy walking and playing bowling and tennis on the Wii.
