About

I teach at HCC because I believe in innovation, opportunity, achievement, and self-reliance.  I am proud of what our students achieve as they chart their life courses – stepping into college work, stepping out, and often stepping in again.  Adjusting to these rhythms and meeting academic standards is a challenge I embrace.
