Thank you for visiting my website. You may find some of the information to be of interest.

We have been residents of Upper Macungie Township since 1977. I was a Professor of Education in the Department of Elementary Education at Kutztown University for 31 years and was Adjunct Faculty at Temple University. My degrees include a B.S. and M.S. from the University of Scranton and a M.S. and Ed.D. from the State University of New York at Albany. Certifications include Elementary Education, Reading Specialist and Special Education in PA and Nursery, Kindergarten, Grades 1-6 and School Psychologist in New York.

Prior to my career in Education, I served in the U.S. Navy mostly aboard an icebreaker which traversed between the Arctic and Antarctica regions. Quite memorable!
