As a new faculty member at UNCW, I am very interested in connecting with schools that are wanting to implement an inquiry approach and/or integrated curriculum.I am especially interested in working with elementary schools that want to enhance reading and writing with hands-on science.

I am committed to excellence in teaching, scholarship and service.I’ve had two primary goals since I have returned to higher education from the public schools:
- to challenge my students to be the best teachers they can be, and
- to work with schools, teachers and their curricula to better achieve an educational system that can prepare all children for our 21stcentury global, democratic society.
These goals require inquiry, intuition, ingenuity, collaboration, and dedication.I see the future of our nation and our educational system at a crossroad.It is critical that we work together within the college, with colleagues in other colleges, with colleagues in other universities, and with the public schools to refine our techniques and reform the educational system.
