I have a BA in History from CSULA and a Master of Divinity from Claremont School of theology. I taught middle and high school for 12 years before retiring, and have taught a variety of subjects and grades. My passion is nearly all elements of history and also religion, and I am a reverend as well. I have also engaged in living history though Renaissance fairs for 20 years.
For me, love of history is a passion, a living subject filled with adventure and mystery and drama, just waiting to be unlocked and made relevant to the present. In addition to teaching, I have also tutored, including working with the No Child Left Behind program, and making strong use of technology with computers and the internet for research, reading and writing.
Education is the gateway to success. Without a good command of reading and writing, language and grammar, we have little hope of excelling today. To read well opens up the whole world. Without history, to not know where we came from, we have little hope of knowing our place in the present, or how to plan for our future. That is my love and my passion.
