During 2019 Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) Faculty Colloquium it was announced that I am one of 2018-19 FSCJ Distinguished Faculty Awards winners for our work in college teaching, TEDx, global education, and our community work with the Boy Scouts of America.
The Award is based on nominations from students, staff, or faculty and it is chosen by FSCJ Academy of Teaching and Learning based on this criteria:
Excellence in teaching demonstrating an outstanding ability to communicate effectively with students; to plan, prepare, and deliver effective classroom presentations; and to establish and maintain a positive rapport with students within an educational environment. Use of innovative design and delivery beyond the normal expectation of faculty at FSCJ. Community commitment responding to institutional needs, including problem solving, institutional development, and the demonstration of an exceptional ability to adapt positively to unit and institutional change.
Thanks for BSA, Sea Scouts, BSA, and North Florida Council for the opportunity to serve our youth. Scouting as an educational method has been present in all my FSCJ courses.
