Teaching

Teachers and teaching are the core of the educational process.  This process is fundamental to democracy, and teacher education produces informed, confident and capable citizens for the community at large.  This will continue to be the foundation of the success of our nation and the world.  I am proud to be a faculty member at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and to be a part of this process.
