As an emerita faculty member at Oregon State University I continue to teach online and sometimes face to face. My area of expertise is Cultural Competence (Current Vitarev14). For an overview of my work for 2009-2014 please view this chart.
I have served on the board of the Oregon Chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education and aspects of my work are on the Speakers’ Bureau.
For a sample of my style, please view my interview, “Rosa Parks, My Arrest, and What You Can Do in the Struggle for Equality (Part 1)” “Part 2” “Part 3”
My course, “Racial and Cultural Harmony in the K-12 Classroom” is currently taught through OSU ecampus in the winter and summer quarters. This link for faculty is dated, yet tells you more about my teaching style.
