I retired from public education in 2007 after 14 years of teaching and 17 years of administration. I served as an English (grades 6-8), mathematics grade 7-8), and science teacher (grade 8). I also taught elementary gifted education (grades 2-5). I held the position of elementary principal for 9 years and assistant superintendent in charge of secondary education and professional development for 8 years. After submitting my retirement, I immediately came to the university and have taught literacy and classroom management courses with a field experience component. I am also a retired church organist after playing services for 25 years.
