Betty Clements prefers to teach in a traditional classroom, as she likes the element
of immediate interaction and loves the nonverbal communication that is shared. She
has also taught online courses for over 10 years.
As an undergraduate, she was inspired to teach Speech Communication by one of her
instructors, who served as her mentor and encouraged her to pursue graduate studies.
She uses relative activities, including games, to help students learn and maintain
interest in class.
Her hobbies include: decorating, event-planning, playing and/or watching basketball,
fishing, traveling, and cooking. Causes that she is passionate about include: homelessness
and rehabilitation of persons with disabilities.
