Welcome to my Web Page. I began teaching in 1973, @ DCCC in 1983. I enjoy working with my students and helping you to see how important reading is. Though I may never teach you to love reading as much as I do, I can help you to read, study, and understand textbooks, novels, magazines and newspapers. Nothing will define who you are more than your ability to read, write and speak (in this country) the English language. Remember what Helen Keller said: "No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit."
