What do you want your students to learn in your classes?

I teach a number of very different subjects so it varies, but all of them are applicable to life in, and especially outside of, academia. I promise you will use much of this knowledge in your daily lives in possible careers, but also as you read and hear everyday discussions and conversations and solve everyday problems.

Why did you start teaching?

I started teaching quite by accident and it is the best "accident" I have ever had!

What's the best advice that you could give your students?

Take advantage of each opportunity as it comes to you. I don't believe in coincidences, this opportunity has come to you for a reason. Don't be shy, do it!

What is the one book you think everyone should read?

Read anything you like but just READ!

Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students might not know about you.

While I love teaching, on my "off hours" I love to do things with my children, care for and ride horses, quilt and do fiber arts. I know that makes me sound old but...oh wait, I am old! I also ski and hike in the beauty of Oregon and most recently, Iceland with my kids.
