I am a tenured instructor and have been teaching full-time at Cuesta for 20 years. I teach our Public Speaking, Group Communication, and Interpersonal Communication courses. I teach a fully online Interpersonal Communication course and face to face classes. I also serve as our North County Campus Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Cluster Coordinator. One theme that emerges consistently from my student evaluations and the feedback I request from my students every semester is how connected they feel to each other and their appreciation for the strong sense of community I develop with my classes, especially the online class.
