Thank you, Dr. Alston, Your feedback on how you go about making a positive first impression was helpful and a good reinforcement to hear again.

My introduction covers several areas. How or why I am qualified to teach the class. Personal background. Introduce my family. Fun stuff. That both my wife and I are actors. What we have done and where you can see it. I have produced an award winning documentary in the field of Psychology. Next, my military background.
