Over the years I have demonstrated success as an effective educator capable of teaching and directing students while maintaining high interest and achievement. I possess strong communication skills and effectively interact with diverse populations at a variety of academic levels. I have consistently maintained excellent relations with students, parents, faculty and administrators.
I feel education at any level should be focused on improving the reasoning and critical thinking skills of students. It is a teacher's responsibility to provide students with the background knowledge needed to solve problems, but education should also help students build confidence in their ability to use things they have learned to tackle difficult real-world problems.
I earned two Master's Degrees - Kaplan University, Master of Science in Higher Education, and Lancaster Theological Seminary, Master of Divinity. I also earner a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Social Science/Education from the State University of New York-Binghamton.
I am the author of two published works: The Power of Love: Improving Family Dynamics; and The Truth, a biography of an inmate incarcerated for life.
I am a retired English teacher, Missouri Military Academy, Mexico, MO; and I taught Relationships at Hampshire Country School, Rindge, NH, and an adjunct professor at Broome Community College, Writing for the Media.
I am an ordained minister and former chaplain at a state correctional institution; and a veteran, serving in the U. S. Army.
