About Me

Theodora has been teaching in the business and human resource management programs at Marygrove College since 2004. She has taught in both the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. Her research interests include the scholarship of teaching and learning and the integration of technology into teaching. A native of Indiana, she has lived overseas as well as in many cities across the United States, which gives her a unique perspective on diversity and learning styles. She serves as a lector and cantor at her church. An avid reader, her interests cross genres from science fiction to popular culture to historical fiction. Interested in music, she listens to a wide variety: classical music, jazz, and rhythm and blues, in particular.
