M.Ed., Reading, Ashland University
B.S., Education, Lake Erie College
I taught in elementary classes and middle school special education classes for thirty four years, retired and joined the education department at LEC in 2011. I love teaching young adults how to teach as much as I loved teaching children!
What makes Lake Erie College a unique place?
Lake Erie College is where you belong if you enjoy small classes and close relationships. In the Education Department, we are able to place students in local schools that offer outstanding experiences with dedicated educators. LEC Education Department is highly respected by local districts and, because of that, our students have many opportunities to meet and interact with local educators. Many of our students are employed by local districts when they graduate.
