TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught for 30 years in Michigan public schools where most of my time was spent in middle school classrooms.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My style of teaching was to dialogue through history. We had great discussions and arguments where everyone's mind was engaged, almost anyway. There were always more hands raised than I could ever call on.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Some of my students listed me in Who's Who in American Education. There were several other awards but generally I do not seek awards. The satisfaction of a job well done is enough.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

AB in history from Calvin College. MA in geography from Western Michigan University. Phd candidate in geography from WMU.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

school board for six years, union president, teacher negotiator, grievance chairman, deacon and elder in my church,
