Educator Associate Professor
A&S English - 0069
I have been teaching all levels for over 42 years, and, in my next life, I plan to continue teaching. I am pursuing an additional doctorate in Administration and Curriculum/Instruction. Upon my retirement from the University of Cincinnati, I plan to re-enter the public/Catholic system as an administrator.
