I enthusiastically join Aurora University after completing thirty-four years in public school education. I passionately served as a school administrator for twenty-two years, primarily in the roles of associate superintendent, and high school principal. My love for K-12 literacy learning developed over twelve years as a reading specialist. I joined AU in 1996, as an adjunct, and then as a pro-rata professor in the Master of Arts in Educational Leadership program. I shared my passion for learning with candidates enrolled in: Contemporary Issues; Scholarship Applied to Teaching; Introduction to Action Research; Educational Leadership; Curriculum Development and Evaluation, and School and Community Relations.
