Teaching Experience: 43+ years in schools across the US (and Thailand!) My goal as an educator is to provide an atmosphere of joy and happiness in which students can experience peace and love during their school hours. The subject that I most enjoy teaching is religion, because I enjoy watching children grow, especially in their faith. My hope is that what they learn about their faith in school will be carried over into adulthood. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with Ginger (my pastor’s dog) and Sandy (my sister’s dog), listening to good music, and listening to baseball (especially the Cardinals).
