Story:
I started teaching at Arizona State University, but realized I wanted to be at a smaller school with a liberal arts focus and an emphasis on teaching. I came here in 1976 and have happily stayed ever since. Besides teaching History and First Year Seminar, I have had the privilege of working with many colleagues in the past as the director of the Learning Enhancement Service, the CSB/SJU program to help faculty teach in ways that promote excellent student learning.
