Tarleton is a special place full of tradition. I am a professor at Tarleton State University, and I prepare future educators for the classroom of the 21st CENTURY. For the last 20 years, Tarleton has been my home. I have taught children for over 32 years in various content areas. Come join us...
Teaching is life
“He who ceases to learn cannot adequately teach.” ~ Anonymous Teacher
Teaching has provided me with a purpose in life. Teaching and learning with others is living to its fullest. Maslow would call it self-actualization. Over the years I have found solace and joy in serving new teachers and families. Being a part of the teaching profession creates a sense of belonging, like no other affiliation. When I am working with my fellow teachers, I benefit from discussing lessons and reviewing engaging instructional techniques. Basically, I am happy to be a teacher. When I see my students learning difficult concepts, I have all the motivation I need to remain a teacher and continue doing the good work of teaching.
My family (Parents, Wife, Kids, & Tarleton State University)
I am fortunate. I had loving parents as a child. I am amazed to be loved by a loving wife and kids. Life would not be the same without my family. Also, I am happy to have a supportive work family in academia at Tarleton State University. Below, you will find a few pictures of these special people in my life.
