I instruct in the early childhood department. I teach EDUC 245 Teaching the Young Child, EDUC 334 Communication and Collaboration in Early Childhood, EDUC 336 Professional Practice in Early Childhood, and EDUC445 Integrated Social Studies and Language Arts for Children, which is a methods course.
I have been married to my best friend for 36 years. We enjoy the company of our 10 nieces and nephews. We are active in our church where we hold a variety of leadership roles. Our favorite service is singing in the choir. I love to read, especially history. I use my creative energies to create hand stamped greeting cards, and I love teaching others to make cards.
