I’ve been teacher since 1986, educated through Eastern Michigan University. Here are some ways to see what work I’m up to.
W hat am I reading? What do I recommend? What book lists do I keep? Here is a massive pile of lists, reviews, and even essay prompts for classic works. I also keep a list here of authors I have rejected as worthy of publishing! My lists of sources for various projects can also be found here along with recommendations for college reading for students.
W ith students and without students, I have been exploring as many places as I can afford. Here are pages, posts, and pics on the more than 30 countries I have visited. Model UN and Interact trips are here, along with those supported by grants I’ve received. I’ve traveled on study grants to Cuba, Nepal, India, and Japan.
I work harder and harder to be environmentally conscious in my work, home, and travels. Everywhere I have traveled, it has been easy to see the impact not just of climate change but of wasteful behavior. Here are lessons I’ve learned, practices I maintain, and goals I struggle to keep, whether in recycling or nutrition and health.
