I’ve been a high school English teacher for over twenty-five years.

I’m also the author of The Zen Teacher:  Creating Focus, Simplicity, and Tranquility in the Classroom (DBC, Inc. 2015) and Sanctuaries: Self-Care Secrets for Stressed Out Teachers (DBC, Inc. 2018).

In my spare time, I enjoy writing fiction, listening to music (especially Roots Rock and The Blues), reading mystery novels, staring out of windows, and watching movies.  One of my first loves is writing poetry, and I’ve published many poems both in print and on-line.
