Chyna Teresa Trible, M.S.
Instructor, Volunteer, and Consultant in New York
I am blessed to be able to combine many of my interests in sports, media, public relations, writing, public speaking, and all things communication as I teach Communication and English courses (Sports Communication (my newly developed curriculum), Human Communication (interactive), Business Communication, Interpersonal Communication, Public Speaking, & Mass Communication) at colleges in upstate NY. In addition to my instruction, I research in the above-mentioned areas to help advance the discipline and improve my classroom instruction, particularly in using emerging technologies, when relevant, to enhance classroom pedagogical learning outcomes.
I share my love for life through volunteering in myriad capacities. These include serving as a summer soccer camp coach for my high school alma mater and as an instructor of Latin / root words for a local, private elementary school. I also enjoy teaching religious education classes and offering communication consulting for educational and nonprofit organizations.
My garden is my oasis; you can find me there daily in the summer months and dreaming of living much farther south in the winter! I love (understatement) attending sporting events, especially for my favorite teams (#BuffaloBills #FloridaGators). I thrive when I am around happy, intelligent people who challenge me to become a better version of myself.
