    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
   
I believe that every student has the potential to make a difference in society and that it is the job of the instructor to guide them. In fact, the more difficult the student - the greater reward. 
     
    CURRENT PROJECTS
   
Learning Community
In the fall of 2004, I will be teaching a Reading 6 class for students who are simultaneously enrolled in PSC1515 (Energy in the Natural Environment) as part of a learning community. These EAP students will begin earning college credit and by completing PSC 1515 they will satisfy one half of the science requirement for the AA.

CASSC (Students With A Messy Portfolio)
I currently serve on the campus CASSC.

 

     
    INTERESTS
   
I enjoy riding my bicycle, walking on the beach, working in my yard, and reading existential literature. I also enjoy a good game of yahtzee, bowling, and chess.
