In our student success course we use MindTap to enhance student learning. This tool gives students an opportunity to prepare for class and strengthen their knowledge of the class content. In my Developmental English course, Integrated Reading and Writing, my students use Aplia to help master and review key concepts. The reporting capabilities of MindTap and Aplia allow me to not only differentiate instruction, but also to report meaningful data at the system-level which serves in my role as program coordinator.
I earned my doctorate degree from Sam Houston State University after receiving undergraduate and graduate degrees from Prairie View A&M University. Throughout my years of service to Houston Community College I've had the opportunity to serve on and lead various committees such as the Achieving the Dream Committee, Financial Literacy and Capabilities Program, Guided Pathways Committee, and Peer Mentor Team just to name a few. Moreover, I have led course development teams for Learning Framework, Integrated Reading and Writing, and a host of other Non-Course Based Options.
