pearson, geek at large.

Cookeville TN

Hardly official. But officially nerdy. College teaching and advising specialist. Currently teaching algebra/based physics (for students studying anything from pre-med stuff to engineering technology). Recent history in chemistry education (general/organic/physical), but sufficient background to handle everything from a random non-majors course to quantum or biochem, and all points in-between. Strong history in health professions advising, but will obsess over a college catalog with the best of them (even though that's not currently my job). Ed-tech nerd (and raving Moodle fan, but getting up to speed on Desire2Learn and Top Hat). Education policy obsessive. Eclectic music listener. (You probably don't want to know about my college football passion - but I grew up in north Florida/south Georgia, I went to grad school at Ohio State, and my postdoc was in Birmingham, Alabama; you do the math. You also probably don't want to know that I was at the first Columbus Crew match in 1996, and have been an MLS fan ever since.) Evangelical Christian. I don't wonder about the Christian part. I wonder about the Evangelical part ALL THE TIME.
