My past professional experience includes teaching Middle School and High School Mathematics and Social Studies in private and public schools.  I have had the privilege to be a part of the administrative team for elementary, middle, and high school programs.  I served as both head and assistant coach for high school football, basketball teams, and varsity teams.  I have been a faculty member here at UCM since 2000.  My research interests include secondary school administration communication behavior related to teacher position satisfaction.  Additional research has been focused on the study of instructional strategies supporting both content knowledge and the application of this knowledge in authentic learning environments.  I currently serve as an instructional mentor for first year faculty members at the University of Central Missouri.  During this collaborative process, I support new faculty during this first two semesters at UCM.
