My Unique Approach to Education

I want to see Amberton students make a real difference in the world by combining practical education with Christian teachings, in order to benefit self and others toward a better and more successful life.

My teaching strategy is to distill course principles into simple understandings and to develop workable ways to successfully apply these great truths to common daily living.

Biography

Since 1992, I have taught Human Behavior and Development courses at Amberton. For over 40 years, I worked in public schools in various capacities as a teacher, an administrator, and in numerous Central Office positions. I am a great fan of Stephen Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and blend these basic principles into each of my courses. Also I am both certified and practice as a Life Coach; I am a natural health practitioner; and for fun I love family, travel, and genealogical research.
