My interests are in teaching using, particularly, the active classroom techniques.
Another interest is in 'community empowerment' by assisting neighborhoods in the working class areas develop a sense of pride and accomplishment through organization.

My teaching goals are to increase the active interest and utilization of sociology in the lives of my students. To do this, I utilize the active classroom techniques and individual or groups projects outside the classroom.
Again, my research interests are in perfecting teaching techniques for the wide range of sociology classes I teach. My other research interest is in communities, specifically those I assist to empower themselves.
