Personal Interests

I was born and raised in Montana and still enjoy the outdoors and traveling across our beautiful state.  I am also an avid crafter, enjoying stamping, beading, cross stitch, doll-making and quilting in my spare time.  I am an avid reader, reading everything from fiction to fantasy to mysteries to non-fiction.  I  enjoy teaching and spend time trying to make my classes more relevant and more fun.  I also enjoy spending time with friends' children, so I keep in touch with the younger generation.

I have been teaching at MSU-Billings for 22 years and also for 3 years in the mid-70's.  I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Education from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, my Master's Degree in Special Education - Emotional Disturbance from University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona and my Ph.D. in Special Education from University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.  My public school experience includes three years teaching special education in St. Paul, Minnesota, one year teaching kids with emotional disturbance in Billings, Montana and three years as a behavior specialist and grad assistant at Wright School for students with emotional disturbance in Durham, North Carolina.  At one time or another, I have taught almost all of the classes in the special education program, been chair of the department two times, and now teach graduate classes in general special education and the undergraduate class on emotional disturbance.
