I have spent 37 years as an educator, the first 11 as a high school English teacher, football coach, women's softball coach, and baseball coach. Since 1999 I have been in the Educational Studies Department at Davidson College where I teach a variety of courses in education, writing, and humanities. My research interests include democracy and education, the history of education, and multicultural education.
