Professional Statement

After having taught in public school classrooms for almost thirty years, I am thrilled to join the School of Education at Husson University. When I made the decision to change levels, one of my former young students reminded me that I would still be a teacher, but it would be with "big kids" who were learning to do exactly what I did with him. He said that would make me a teacher's teacher. He asked what I would teach the big kids. I told him that I hoped it would be the same things I shared with him - that learning is fascinating and fun, that being a creative and critical thinker is important to becoming a good problem-solver, that being responsible and respectful are needed to build a community, and that treating others with TLC makes life happier and richer.

I look forward to this new adventure and trust that it will be stimulating and rewarding. My goal as a teacher's teacher is to ensure that our School of Education Teacher Education Program prepares competent, reflective future educators ready for the exciting challenges that await them!
