  • I decided to pursue a degree in communications because I feel if you can communicate with people you can get any job.”

    Logan Kay

  • I enjoy opening students eyes to something they had not yet realized, or something they had never considered before. The "ah-ha" moments and the moments where you can tell they are connecting with the material are the best moments in the classroom!”
