Academic Background

After graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania I taught in elementary and secondary schools in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. While in Pennsylvania I earned a Masters Degree in Education from the University of Pittsburgh. Later I received an NDEA fellowship to pursue a Master of Arts Degree in the Teaching of Economics from Purdue University. I completed my PHd in Education at Ohio University and then accepted a position on the elementary education faculty at Youngstown State University. After some time at Youngstown State, I received my current position in elementary education and the department of economics and finance at Rhode Island College. This became an opportunity to work with the most enjoyable group of educators and students imaginable.
