Irma Gibson

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Social Work at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical  University. I am a Graduate faculty who teaches across the curriculum, including a variety of courses on the topics of child and family welfare, direct and indirect practice, human behavior and the social environment, interviewing and recording, self-awareness and professional development, school social work and social work practice with vulnerable populations ,where I utilizes the MindTap tools in two of my courses. I have taught abroad annually since 2009 and crossed international borders in my successful endeavors to culturally connect the U.S. and the Trinidad and Tobago child and family welfare systems. I entered into the academy full-time approximately 11 years ago after 21 years of social work practice and experience, as a Clinician and a Social Work Administrator with various components of the federal government, nationally and internationally. I obtained my Bachelor's in Sociology from Paine College—magna Cum laude, and my Master's in Social Work from the University of Georgia and Ph.D. in Social Work with a concentration in public health from Clark Atlanta University. I am the proud mother of an awesome 27-year-old son who is a Savannah State University graduate, presently fulfilling his career in radio and television in Des Moines, Iowa. I also enjoys teaching, listening to music, traveling, spending time with my family and reading.

"MindTap has been beneficial to me, as well as the students, by uniquely enhancing my ability to expound upon my hands-on and interactive pedagogy philosophy, as well as incorporate real world teaching methods. As a result, the needs of every type of student learner are met: visual, auditory and experiential."
