Interpersonal Communication, M.A. UCF - 2010
Interpersonal/Organizational Communication, B.A. UCF - 2007
My goal is to advance educational equity and diversity through conversation, to support student success by teaching academic standards and life skills, as well as, encourage students to use critical thinking as they discover and pursue their potentials for success.
I am proud to be married for more than 30 years.
It is my pleasure to work with future educators, who will influence future generations, as well as Speech Communication students at DSC, to spread the concept:
And Respect Equality
I am an active advocate for Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity.
As an online instructor, who lives on the coast, I do not have regular office hours. You may contact Dr. Paula da Silva, Ph. D. email@example.com 407-582-1712
