After graduating from a state university in California I taught for 5 years in Wyoming. I came to Columbus in 1981 to attend grad school at OSU and then began a 25 year career in Dublin, Ohio. The last 18 years as an elementary school principal. I retired from public education in 2008 to live in Tanzania, Africa for two years working on a water filter project. Upon returning to Columbus, I began working as an adjunct professor at OSU, Ashland Univ., and Capital. I work only at Capital now.
