- From the Instructor:
- Hello! My name is Kim Smith and I will be your instructor for SOC 204 Sociology in Everyday Life. I have taught many different sociology courses at PCC since 1996 and have served in a variety administrative roles. Each time I teach a sociology course, I learn something new.
