Nothing is more wonderful to me than seeing a student's "light turn on" - meaning that I have engaged them in the topic to the point where they find personal relevance and application. Once a student "connects" with a subject, it is so much easier to learn and to retain knowledge. I believe that there is no greater joy than to learn and then apply that knowledge in a meaningful way. I love being a part of that process!

A large part of my undergraduate work was spent in Old Testament Studies and numerous coursework hours on archeological methodology, analysis and site studies. Spent time working with Yigal Shiloh (who studied under Yigal Yadin) in Jerusalem on dig-site outside of Old City. Traveled extensively in Europe, Israel, Sinai and Turkey. Masters degree in religion focused on Old Testament studies, Dead Sea Scrolls and Gnostic Gospels. Have taught undergraduate seminars on Dead Sea Scrolls and continuing education courses on Dead Sea Scrolls, Gnostic Gospels, Creation Mythology, and Medieval Philosophy. Archeological record plays a huge role in these subjects

History is my #1 passion! I believe that a good knowledge of history is critical in informing how we engage our present and plan for our future. I believe that to ignore the significance and contextual relevance of history is to approach local and global political and economical matters with a critical disadvantage.
