As Coordinator of Adjunct Faculty, I work with our adjunct workforce to assure each instructor has the tools and resources they need to provide excellence in the classroom. From initial orientation to more intensive training, from monthly socials to assistance in navigating our myriad resources, I am often the go-to person on campus for adjuncts. As an adjunct faculty member, I began teaching art history in January, 2006, where I found both a vocation and a passion fulfilled. Since then, I have taught in the departments of Art and Environmental Studies, for the Honors College, and for the Clemente and Venture Programs. Courses taught: ART 110 (in class and online), ART 310, ART 311, ART 312, ART 315, HON 213, May Term: Exploring Great Salt Lake
