Philosophy of teaching at Baylor
Relating to and mentoring students is the most rewarding and challenging aspect of my teaching in the teacher education program at Baylor. Having taught in the public schools of four states over a period of 18 years, I am able to share my own experiences as a teacher while equipping candidates with the kind of strong research-based strategies and effective teaching methods which will enable them to be successful teachers. Helping to develop the dispositions of effective teachers is a real joy.

Research Interests
I am interested in current research in Middle Level education, in teacher education efficacy, and organizational impact on adolescent learning. I am also interested in research of effective young adolescent development of literacy.
