Presentation Abstract

Why’d you leave? Not only have I fielded that question from just about everyone when I joined the faculty at Andrews University, but I have also personally wrestled with my doubts that I can be an effective teacher. The more I reflected on this, the more I came to realize that journalism and teaching share many of the same principles. In this presentation I’ll share what I’ve learned over the past 8 years.
