At USM LAC I teach Sociology, Ethics, Education, and Leadership courses, and appreciate the ability to work out my own eclectic, inter-disciplinary interests! I earned my Ph.D. in Sociology of Education at the University of New Hampshire, and also specialized in the Sociology of Science and the Sociology of Race and Ethnic Relations. I am mainly interested in the politics, economics, and socio-cultural aspects of K-16 education.
I worked in Civil Rights in the field of K-12 education for many years, and have won two awards for my Anti-Racism work in schools. My "fifteen minutes of fame" was when I was featured on the national McNeil-Lehrer News Hour as a "gender equity expert" on the topic of single-sex schooling. We live in Scarborough and have a beautiful daughter and an equally beautiful yellow lab! I try to return "home" to Wyoming 3-4 times a year.
