Associate Professor of Sociology - Allegany College of Maryland
I am a sociology professor at Allegany College of Maryland, which is located in Cumberland, MD. I also work as the Faculty Director of the Service Learning and Civic Engagement (SLCE) Center at the college. I have worked in a variety of professions in my past that focuses on helping the homeless. Most recently I was the director of a peace and justice organization in Pittsburgh.
I am a great supporter of the work of TheChisel.com because it helps raise up topics that students and community members can work on together, in a bi-partisan manner, to address.
School Funding - Allegany County College of Maryland
I am from Maryland and I am currently in college. From my years of being in the public education school system I have recognized many issues with the funding. Too many schools are being under funded and not giving students/teachers the experience they deserve. Students are unable to branch out in the public school system and teachers are struggling because of the class sizes they have because of funding.
