About Me

An educator, consultant, and public scholar. What does that mean?

I've taught every grade from 6 through 20 – that’s middle school, high school, undergrad, and graduate school.

Everyone is equally invested and represented, and the results are useful to everyone, rather than stashed away in the Ivory Tower… in a journal no one reads… in language no one understands!
