Demographic Information (OPTIONAL)

Demographic Information helps me know who my students are and helps me know how to best plan to help the individuals and not just the group. As an African American woman who went back to law school at 36 years old as a single parent with 2 children, a history of academic difficulty (my UGPA was 2.3), a history of during poorly on standardized test (my LSAT was 145) and a learning disability , I am the poster child for ignoring conventional wisdom about who excels in law school. I graduated 11th in my class from Lewis & Clark College Northwestern School of Law.  I also know that working hard is necessary but not sufficient, working smart is essential.  You cannot work smart unless you have accurate information.  Demographic information is a beginning step to helping me know who my students are and thus, be a better prepared teacher.

I also ask for demographic information because I use it to assure that when we address some problems that the groups are diverse.

The Following Demographic Information is optional.
