Mississippi College

Martha Hutson

In his book, The Courage To Teach, Parker Palmer says "good teachers join self and subject and students in the fabric of life."  I try to live out that personal philosophy as I teach classes at MC in history, geography, and education.  If you appreciate an interactive class experience, come join me in the classes listed below.
