Teaching Interests

This is my 8th year with the Grand Valley Geology Department where I enjoy working with my students and colleagues.   This year I am teaching Geo203 - Weather for Pre-Service Teachers, Geo111 Exploring the Earth and Geo100 Environmental Geology.  I completed my Masters of Geoscience and enjoyed a two week field course on San Salvador in the Bahamas.  Before coming to Grand Valley I taught earth science at the middle and high school level for 13 years in Wellesley, Massachusetts, Madison Wisconsin, and Kansas City, Missouri.
