More About Me

  • Since writing is a multidimensional skill, each of my English courses includes reading, writing, speaking and listening. The writing process is emphasized; students share in a workshop styled class. I believe that learning can be fun, and I hope students take away a learning culture from our activities that will continue beyond semester’s end.
  • Summer is my favorite time of the year and there’s no better place to spend it than West Michigan
  • At MCC, we open doors to students who might not otherwise find the kind of support we offer at the College Success Center.
  • “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Aristotle
  • “Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in.” Leonardo da Vinci
