About Me
I am passionate about preparing quality business teachers who will instill a love of business and business ethics into their students through practical business applications and real-world experiences. I came to teaching from industry training back in the 1980's because I loved teaching and it is a great family career. I have never sought to achieve great and noble accomplishments but have found great joy in my family and small-town roots while encouraging students to live great and noble lives on their journey.

I am active in the national arena of business teacher education and see the need to keep quality teachers in the classroom who will relate to the students and help them achieve their goals with the business integrity to move our country forward. It has been an honor to help many teacher candidates from all walks of life and from across our great country achieve their goals to become active in the classroom with today's youth. How can I help you?
