Roxie V. Godfrey has had the opportunity of being on both ends of the spectrum in distance education as an online student in a graduate program and as an instructor. While working full time as a secondary teacher, coaching and being a mother of four children, Godfrey obtained her online master's and doctorate degrees.
Godfrey officially joined the family and consumer sciences education faculty in the College of Human Sciences at Texas Tech University in September 2012. She is the TTU FCSE master's program coordinator, student teacher supervisor and teaches family and consumer sciences online and face to face courses. Her research focus is mobile learning, mobile technologies and distance education in the global market.
Godfrey has been a member of the International Federation for Home Economics during her professional career in Virginia and Texas. She has attended and made presentations at the IFHE World Congress in Lucerne, Switzerland, and Melbourne, Australia, and IFHE Council meetings in Sligo, Ireland, and London, Canada. She also traveled to Valletta, Malta, for the IFHE annual leadership meeting.
Prior to her university appointment, Godfrey served as an adjunct faculty member at Regent University at the Washington, D.C., campus. She taught family and consumer sciences at the secondary level schools in Texas and Virginia for 22 years and served as special assistant to the assistant secretary of civil rights at the U.S. Department of Education.
An important aspect of her life is family: her husband, four children (currently living in California, Kentucky, Texas and Washington, D.C.), and one grandson (living in Texas). Outside of professional interests, she loves family activities, riding horses, traveling and collecting friends.
