MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I grew up on a ranch in the hills of Idaho; as close to the local ski resort as to the nearest town. That idyllic childhood of work and exploration has colored the way I like to teach--with a little of the same kinds of hand-on experiences and exploration in the classroom.
