I completed my undergraduate work in Latin and Greek at Memphis State University in 1977 and attended graduate school at the University of Illinois, again studying Latin and Greek. I also subsequently picked up a J.D. from Memphis State, a B.S. in Computer Information Systems from Metro, and an M.A. in Education from CU Boulder.
I had my teaching license after undergrad and taught a summer semester at Memphis State and also taught as a graduate assistant at Illinois. But I only recently found the opportunity to get back into a classroom at Vanguard in 2015.
I grew up in Memphis and lived in Dallas, Las Vegas, and St Louis before coming to Denver in 1998. I enjoy the outdoors and help teach rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, mountain climbing, and navigation skills at the Colorado Mountain Club.
I teach because I am a fanatic about learning new things and hope to pass along that passion for learning to others.
