If we really want everyone to think and act "like us" we are being unrealistic and losing a valuable opportunity to grow as individuals, and as a society. ~ P. McNulty
I have been teaching Intercultural Communication at De Anza College for the past twenty years. I am a native Californian of European descent. I've also taught English as a Second language and designed cross cultural training materials for U.S.-based multinational corporations and refugee resettlement programs. I co-authored "The Culture Puzzle" (Pearson), an Intercultural Communication textbook for ESL students, and developed "38 Critical Incidents on the Job" for OTI's (DAC) refugee training programs. In Fall, 2018 I will be teaching a section of Comm/ICS 7 at Cupertino High School (open to all FUHSD and DAC students)! Why do I love teaching here at De Anza College? Simple: De Anza students are amazing: They are hard working, articulate, perceptive, and bring a wealth of relevant lived experience to classroom discussions. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Intercultural / International Studies team at De Anza College!
