Educational Philosophy:
I believe if those who say they hate to write would face their fears, they would see how truly rewarding and fun writing can be. I like to focus on what learners love, and I try to show them how to bring that passion to the classroom. My background in journalism has taught me the value of effectively and efficiently using language, which is something I share with my class. Being there for that moment when a learner realizes "I can do this," is unlike anything else.

Personal Profile:
I went to school to become a writer. My first real job was working at a newspaper, where I did a lot of writing. I love a good story. I also love to travel and play basketball. Before moving to Eastern North Carolina in 1992, I lived and grew up in Florida. I was born in Germany. Home is Rocky Mount with my wife and two daughters.
