Teaching Philosophy/Research Interests

I like to have students engaged in the classroom. Students are given numerous opportunities to provide feedback on information covered in class. I also like to relate my travels to what is being covered. I have taken history-related trips to all 50 states and approximately 60 foreign countries. I am currently researching the topic of slave passes. I am also interested in several other aspects of history.

Message to Students

I like to reward hard workers. Students usually get out of a course what they put into it.
