I have had the opportunity to teach abroad for one year in the Czech Republic, to serve as an administrator and teacher in central city Chicago for eight years, and to serve as an administrator and teacher in Bloomington, Minnesota, for five years before returning to my alma mater. My wife, Diane, and I have been blessed with four children: Melissa, Michael, Stephen, and Sean. It is a privilege to guide and direct students as they develop into servant leaders in the field of education.
