My name is Russ. Meade and I am a Professor at several universities.
I live in the beautiful mountain town of Lake Lure, NC!
The town is small and "down home". If you have seen the movies "Last of the Mohegan's" or" Dirty Dancing", you have seen this area. No crime, miles of great hiking trails, no traffic................Pure heaven....for this New York City boy!
Teaching, especially online, allows me to follow my passion for traveling, back packing, and simply wandering this beautiful world. So far I have visited in 52 nations and am just starting! In each nation, I bring my students with me via video conferencing and SKYPE!
Last term, I taught from Morocco and connected my students with students in this Muslim nation via SKYPE as an optional feature simply to share with each other and learn from each other. It was one of my greatest moments in college teaching! Today many have become fast friends!
As I journey on in life I realize how much there is to learn from others! Perhaps that is the reason why I love traveling and teaching so much...simply because I learn from my students and colleagues
I can always be reached by e mailing me through G-Mail or at firstname.lastname@example.org, ,by telephone 828-625-4744, via my Cell phone- 828-243-8259 via SKYPE, via Linked In or even better do visit me one day in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC
Here is a short Multi Media Introduction I send to my students!
