I work closely with area middle schools in developing experiences for St. Ambrose students and middle school students that provide educational growth for both. These experiences provide our future teachers with opportunities to gain insights in working with this age group.
My work is a reflection of the many years I spent first teaching this age group and then serving as a 6th-8th grade building principal.
