In which online degree programs do you teach?

MS in Curriculum & Instruction -- Early and Middle Childhood Education and MS in Curriculum & Instruction -- Mathematics Education

Which classes do you teach online?

EDU 513: Curriculum Development and Renewal; EDU 566: Teaching Early and Middle Childhood Social Studies

What do you want students to take away from your courses?

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Why did you start teaching?

Education can be acknowledged as a sort of Winkle “family business.” Just as lawyers, musicians, athletes, and farmers seem to run in families, so too do educators. My parents both had careers in public universities, and each had parents who were teachers: one academic and one pastoral. A brother and two sisters are also educators, as are a great number of my aunts, uncles, and cousins. Perhaps we Winkles share some genetic predisposition that inclines us to pursue careers of service. Consequently, although it took me a number of years to find my vocation within higher education—having first experienced careers in both the performing arts as a professional actor and later in corporate finance in New York City—it would seem perhaps inevitable that I would become an educator.

What advice would you give to students considering this online program?

Carefully consider if perusing an online degree is right for you. We at Barry U. have a vested interest in your achieving the educational goals you have set for yourself, but we also recognize that every student learns differently. That's why we offer programs through a variety of modalities: fully online; blended/hybrid; accelerated; face-to-face, etc. Consider how you learn best, and if you have any questions about our programs as you weigh your decisions, please do not hesitate to call the Program Director and have a chat about which program or delivery modality is right for you.

What is the one book you think everyone should read?

I strongly recommend reading the book(s) and materials assigned by your course instructors.

What qualities make someone particularly successful in the profession in which you teach?

Online, I primarily facilitate graduate courses in the Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction programs where a majority of our students are already in-service, licensed teachers. A quality for teachers that I feel is critically important in our profession is the capacity to love and really get to know our students.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students might not know about you.

Prior to becoming an educator, I enjoyed careers in both the performing arts (actor/singer/dancer) and corporate finance in New York City.
