Welcome to my Web page!!

I joined the College of the Siskiyous faculty in 1990.  My life passion has been and continues to be Education.  In this pursuit, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree and teaching credential in English and Reading.  I then taught high school and junior high school while I continued my graduate course work leading to a Master of Arts in Education from the University of Northern Iowa.

Beginning in 1975, and for the many rewarding years since, I have continued to enjoy learning and growing in my profession as an educator in both the public and private sector.

At COS, I am the Reading Specialist in charge of the Reading Lab.  I teach Reading, English, and Education courses.

Some of my favorite quotes...............

  • "Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten." B.F. Skinner
  • "I  never let schooling interfere with my education." Mark Twain
  • "Books are the quietest and most constant of friends:  They are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers." Charles W. Elliot
