Science at GPC
I completed a B. S. Degree in Geology at Western Carolina University,
and a M. S. Degree in Geology at the University of Georgia. I
decided to major in Geology after taking two introductory courses at
GPC's Dunwoody Campus in the late 1980s (known as Dekalb College at
that time). Before those courses I had no intention of
majoring in science!
After completing my M. S. degree, I taught middle and high school
sciences for two years, after which I taught part-time at
Western Carolina University in the Geoscience Department. I
came to GPC as the "lone geoscientist" at the Lawrenceville Campus
in fall of 2001, where I remained until I transferred to
Rockdale/Newton Campus in January, 2007.
