It has been an honor and a privilege to teach here at AU.  I am passionate about what we are doing here within the school of social work.  I love the concept of a small University.  In fact, I transferred here from one of the larger Universities because I felt like a number there.  I strive to give to my students what my professors gave to me when I was here.  I have lived in the Aurora area all my life, so to be able to live and give to my community is a special gift.
