College: B.S.E. from the University of Nebraska in English and German Graduate work at the University of Oklahoma
Why TSAS? In the summer of 2001, I came to an informational meeting before the school ever began. I had a son who was going into ninth grade and I was interested in TSAS. After hearing about the school, I was convinced that my son should go there and I wanted to teach there as well. All three of my children ended up going to TSAS and graduating, and I have had the privilege of teaching here since it began. I can’t think of anywhere I would rather be.
Interesting Fact: I love baking bread, doing crosswords, hiking, biking, and rock climbing. My favorite place to grade papers is at Doubleshot Coffee, sitting at a big table with my colleagues from TSAS. I have been married 28 years and have three wonderful children and one lovely daughter-in-law. A few of my favorite authors: John Donne, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Elizabeth Goudge.
