FPU is the only place I’ve taught. I spent 32 years as a teacher in the English department, with part-time stints as Alumni Director and College Hour coordinator.
In 1991, I was diagnosed with MS. For the first ten years, the disease was quiet but, since 2001, it has shaped and influenced my personal life in dramatic ways. Learning to live with a chronic disease is an adventure, challenging but sometimes even enriching.Publications:

What I Like About FPU:
There’s much to admire about FPU, but I especially treasure the focus on students as whole persons. We don’t separate what a student knows from who a student is.My Home Page: Professional Development for Elementary and Secondary Teachers
