Adrienne Mathews

Instructor - Political Science, Anthropology and IDH

  • Graduated from both Valencia Community College and University of Central Florida

  • Classes I teach: U.S. Government, International Politics, State and Local Government, IDH III and IV, Introduction to Anthropology, and Government and the Media.

  • Adviser to West Campus Model United Nations (best group ever! :)

  • Things that make me happy: (other than my students, of course...) elections, spending time with friends and family - especially my husband, anticipating Liverpool FC games, my three cats, learning about history, the Orlando Magic, traveling, justice, The Tudors, success, finding a new Ricky Gervais podcast, coffee, Model UN, NPR, warm weather, Lifetime Movie Channel, getting new books in the mail, and lazy summers!

  • In my classes, you should find you have all the tools you need to succeed. I do my best to prepare students for exams, which are a major component of your class grade. You can expect a mix of instruction including, but not limited to, lecture, class discussion and group work.

  • Students are expected to come to class prepared by completing homework or study guides, reading the book, and bringing a desire to work hard. Students will find this class to be challenging, but the hard work will bring a greater satisfaction to your accomplishments.
