What year did you start teaching at AU


Why teach at AU?

I desire to see students academically challenged within a faith-based environment in order to reach their potential as God has gifted them. I believe Anderson University does an excellent job of combining academic rigor with spiritual development in order to help students make a significant impact on the world around them.

How would you describe your classes to someone who has never attended one?

My classes are demanding but fair. They challenge students to compete at the highest level, but also provide the tools necessary to be successful.
