On a professional level, Carol thinks of herself first as an educator, independent of the subject matter. She has taught within the traditional educational system, with students at every level from preschool through post-graduate professional education. She has led educational strategy classes for other teachers and has worked with parents on how to help their children learn. She has also taught a range of informal courses that help people continue to learn and grow throughout their lives.
In her decades as a university faculty member, Carol taught a range of courses using mathematics: calculus, geometry, statistics, computer science, and, most relevant to her later choices, scientific visualization. As a volunteer Master Gardener, she teaches about gardening. And since 2008, she has focused even more of her teaching on what had begun as an after-work hobby: the design and creation of art jewelry and other small adornments. She also sells her wares at scheduled events in her WSCC studio, as well as at other shows and galleries in western PA and NY.
Carol’s studio can be found on the second floor of WSCC. Shoppers are welcome to stop by when she is onsite. Carol also offers classes that are $10-15/hour + materials (depending on your skill and the metals in use that month).
