Dr. Michele Rudden

Hi, I am Professor Rudden. (Rhymes with sudden). I spent nearly 11 years in the United States Navy as an Aviation Electronics Technician. I have over 20 years of experience teaching adults, including English and Criminal Justice courses. I graduated from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida with both my Bachelors and Masters in English. I also have a J.D. from Barry University School of Law in Orlando, Florida. I have participated in two conference poster presentations on student writing/study habits, including the FSCJ 25th International Conference on Teaching, co-authored one in-school study on students understanding assignment instructions, and written one in-school article on Frederick Douglass, one narrative story, and one presentation on APA & MLA formatting. (See below).
I currently live in the sunny Southern United States. I love to travel and have been fortunate to see parts of the United States, mostly the East Coast. I can't wait to visit the ones I've missed.

As your instructor, my commitment includes providing you with an exceptional education, one that will encourage you to implement many of the classroom activities in your career. In order to provide the most effective teaching and learning environment, I will provide timely substantive feedback. Additionally, I will engage in discussion postings in order to ensure an optimal learning environment. Finally, please know that I encourage you to contact me via Canvas Inbox Messaging. If you do not have access to Canvas Inbox Messaging, send an email through your Valencia student account, and I will reply Monday through noon on Friday within 48 business hours or even sooner.
