I have wanted ti be a classroom teacher since was a freshman in High School. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado as a Social Studies major in 1976, I embarked on my teaching career. For nine years I taught English and Social Studies in three different school systems. In 1985, I entered the Political Science Ph.D program at the University of Wisconsin campus. Since the fall of 1991 I have been a full time faculty member of the SVSU Political Science Department.
