I am challenged by the need for teachers who are well-prepared to teach in a multicultural environment and more specifically, in inner city schools that want their students to have good choices available to them when they finish their K-12 schooling. I also know that we need elementary teachers who are comfortable with and challenged by math teaching and learning. For years I have been part of the search effort to find “what works” to ensure that such teachers are in our elementary classrooms. I believe we are getting closer to finding ways to make that happen.
My primary activity beyond the Luther community is my church community. I value our worship community there. In addition, I like to read. During the summer, I like to travel.
