"We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then, and have known ever since, that there was something new to me in those eyes - something known only to her and to the mountain. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters' paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view."
--Aldo Leopold

Welcome to My
Home Page!

Welcome to my home page! Here you can learn a little bit about who I am, what I teach and what I like to do when I'm not in the classroom.

This page also showcases some of the web page work my students do in my creative writing and composition classes. I hope you enjoy it.

National Novel Writing Month

Every November, I participate in NaNoWriMo. The past several years, I've made the goal of 50,000 words written in 30 days. I plan to try it again this year. If you're interested, click here to learn more.
