I have spent over 25 years in classrooms in a few different states (IL, IA, ND, MN and now AZ) and one other country, South Korea. Early on in my career, I realized I really enjoyed coming alongside students who struggled in the school setting and helping them find success. That led to helping other teachers understand the hard to reach student through university classes taught and school PD offered.

As for interests, besides keeping up with educational research in the area of behavior management, my mantra is "motion is lotion". I do most of my reading on exercise equipment and when I have a big block of time, I love to go biking. While in Korea, once a year I would bike from the heart of Seoul to the border of North Korea and peer over the river dividing the 2 countries with powerful binoculars.
