I was born in Mayville, North Dakota; Mayville is an interesting place, calm, quiet, and beautiful in all seasons.         

In 1973, I graduated from Mayville State University.  After teaching school in two small North Dakota communities, I fled to the "big" city--Fargo, North Dakota--where I worked on classwork for a Master's Degree in English and enjoyed a career teaching college writing classes at North Dakota State University. 

In 2001, when my younger daughter graduated from Fargo North High School, I followed my brother's advice and moved to Nevada where I first taught 9th grade English at Pahrump Valley High School and then moved to RCMS.

Education is my life and my passion.  I love teaching students how to write and believe it is one of the most important skills they will need to become successful workers in a technological world. 

"Learn to read . . . Read to learn!"  "Learn to write . . . Write to learn!"
