I came to this position following 17 years as a professor of biology at Wayne State College and before that, three years as a 7-12 science teacher - with some Sandhills and Missouri River ecology mixed in. The Honors Academy allows me to combine my belief in the value of education with my experience in college advising and teaching - and use them to promote the educational benefits available through Honors Academy. I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with the High School teachers in our program and the academic departments that are involved at Wesleyan.
