The first 16 years of my teaching career were spent teaching in elementary schools in rural and suburban Minnesota. I remained in Minnesota and taught for another 16 years at a rural high school. While at the high school level, I served as choral conductor, head of the fine arts department, and guidance counselor.

Serving as Coordinator of Clinical Experiences allows me to use the full range of my teaching experiences in order to assist our education majors, as they complete their fieldwork in schools throughout the Milwaukee area.
