Nicole Marie Allaire

Lecturer in English, Iowa State University

Research Areas:
Interpersonal communication, public speaking, gender communication and social media.

About My Teaching:
My teaching philosophy centers on creating a safe, warm, and welcoming atmosphere where students can challenge themselves, enhance their public speaking skills and be creative. I strive to create a positive, fun, and exciting learning environment.

How I came to Teach what I Teach:
While in college, my Speech Communication TA asked me to be her Undergraduate TA because she felt I was called to teach speech. After helping teach a speech class, I discovered that teaching interpersonal communication and public speaking are truly passions of mine. I have taught at the college level for over 16 years.
