Welcome to Dr. Gibson's                                                                                    Continuous Learning Class!

Hi my name is Dr. Gibson!

I'm a St. Louis native, Country Grammar talking, Nellyville U.City, USA Lion from the C/O '08. I make class fun, relatable, insightful, challenging and life changing. My teaching career began in the fall of 2017. The inpsiration to become a educator was based off my doctoral research and a study that I conducted on African American Male Mentorship. My goal has always been to help people succeed, primarliy adolescents. Also, I discovered the need for more Black Male Teacher representation, which drove me to the conclusion that I needed to become a change agent. My love for mentoring youth and guiding them down the right path is my daily motivation. Lastly, I'm dedicated to making education enjoyable and interesting along with develpoing positive relationships with my students to better serve them.  

Education

I attended DeSmet Jesuit High School and University City Senior High (C/O '08). 

I currently hold a B.A. in Sports Management, M.B.A. w/ Emphasis in Marketing, and a Ed.D in Higher Ed Administration. 

My Research: "A Case Study on the Experiences of Black Men Participating in an African-American Male Initiative at a Post-Secondary Institution"  

"21st Century Challenges in Education"

"Challenges of the College Student Athlete: How can College Educators Provide Proper Support?"
