I am a master teacher with over thirty-five years of teaching experience at both the university and secondary level. I hold a B.A. in English, an M.A. in Speech from the University of Michigan, and an M.F.A. in Theatre from the University of California, San Diego. I am also a trained Waldorf high school teacher. I have acted, directed, and produced hundreds of plays and am a published playwright. I am experienced managing training programs for young artists. I love to see students explore their limits, to challenge them to achieve beyond their expectations, and to imagine and create new expressions. I like teaching English, History, Philosophy, Comparative Religion, and Theatre. I believe that the division between the humanities and the sciences is arbitrary: learning depends on observation, attention to detail, and a feel for beauty and truth. I have guided many students, both gifted and remedial, as a teacher and tutor. In addition to loving the outdoors, I also teach Tai Chi and meditation, enjoy gardening, reading, and a good game of chess.
