about

Probably like many students, I found sociology quite by accident. While trying to find a course that would fulfill a Canadian content requirement for a Bachelor of Education degree en route to a teaching career, I stumbled across an introduction to sociology course, advertised with descriptive words such as "people," "society," "families," and "deviance" that appeared interesting. I could never have known then that my tendency to say "don't assume" and "don't take people for granted" underscored the beginnings of the development of my sociological imagination. After completing this introduction to sociology, not only was my interest peaked, but my future career path was set as I switched into the sociology program, wherein I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with honours followed by my Master of Arts and Doctorate degrees. I went on to teach sociology full time at Grant MacEwan University, where I continue to teach a range of courses including introductory sociology, social psychology, criminology, and social research methods. I love teaching and I appreciate my students even more, which inspires me to write resources that contribute to their success, including numerous study guides, manuals, web-based course tools, and especially this textbook. I am also interested in student ratings of instruction and student assessments of instructor character strengths - the focus of my current research interests. I strive to continuously reevaluate my initial assumptions of people and social situations whilst maintaining allegiance to the Chinese proverb: He who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it (original author unknown).
