My first professional career focused primarily on Illinois public school district administration.  I served as a high school building principal and a school district superintendent for twenty-six years.  My employment at Aurora University began in the fall of 1996 as an adjunct professor.  Currently I am employed as a full time associate professor which allows me to fulfill two strong passions.  My first passion is teaching school finance to candidates who are earning their Type "75" Administrative Endorsement.  My second passion is coordinating practical internship activities for candidates who are earning their Type "75" Administrative Endorsement.
