Aside from Twitter and Instagram—please don’t actually try to contact me through social media, though you are welcome to follow me on social media—all other avenues of connection are open to you. You can email me, message me, even setup a video conference to meet with me (though you will need to do so through your university MS Teams or contact me for a link).

I want to stress that if you text message me, identify yourself. I don’t know who you are if you don’t tell me who you are. 

Now, I want to tell you why this information is important.

Communication is the key element to success. If you are having difficulties, communicate with me. If you are struggling to understand a concept, communicate with me.

I cannot help you if you do not communicate with me.

I realize this seems simple, but the number of students that sit back and say nothing until it’s too late for me to do anything to help is phenomenal. And it’s tragic when I look at the students that have failed for one reason: they didn’t communicate. Don’t be that student. I am here to work with you toward your success. Frankly, I’m already successful. And I got there by communicating with my own professors, bosses, friends, partners, and others of importance toward my goals.

You can be successful in my class too. You know how? Communicate.
