Comments:

I am a Professor of English in the School of Liberal Arts Department at Oral Roberts University. I love my job, teaching Comp, YA Lit, Brit Lit, World Lit, Artistic Expression and instructing/observing the English Education majors. I earned a PhD in Education at Oklahoma State University in Tulsa. Before this I taught Senior English at Charles Page High School in Sand Springs for seven years. Since graduating from ORU in 1984, I have taught every grade from 6th through College at public and private schools! I completed my Masters degree in English from Northeastern State University of OK, and Alexandra graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) on May 31st, 2014. Sarah was married 16 years ago in Tulsa, where she and her husband live, and is busy keeping up with our grands Elijah, Judah and Isla! She also completed her Assoc. of Science (Biology) degree at Tulsa Community College, homeschools the boys, and she and her husband own a Volkswagen repair shop in Tulsa.

School Story:

Favorite memories: My friends and I in Latin class enduring Ms. Fowler ("Beaknose"); sitting in Psych. class and hearing students hit the other side of the wall in the assistant Principal's office (we can't do that now!); driving lessons with creepy "Sunburn" Shellenberger; making Ukranian Easter Eggs in Humanities class; staying after class trying to work out Algebra theorems in order to pass Vicki Helwig Selvoski's class; History club trips to New York City!

We went out to Savannah, GA, at the end of July for Alexandra to attend summer orientation at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). Then we had a wonderful vacation on Hilton Head Island.

Steve and I had a great time at Big Cedar near Branson, MO last week (our timeshare); it was the first time in almost 20 years that we had gotten away by ourselves for that long!
