I am a member of the Education department and am currently a site coordinator for our Year Long Student Teaching program.  I am involved with advising and student teacher supervision. I obtained my doctorate from the University of South Dakota in Adult and higher Education, M.A. from Western Michigan University in 1997, and my B.S. from Trinity Christian College in 1989. I began my career by teaching math and science to 7th and 8th graders. My research interests are in improving instruction and diversity education at all educational levels.
