I have lived in four states, traveled in many of the rest, and enjoy most the misty half of Oregon. My professional interests include the pedagogy of student-centered classrooms, mentoring librarians and faculty for teaching excellence, and exploring how to create learning environments to motivate students of all ages and experience.

My favorite books include Lavinia, by Ursula K. LeGuin; The Wild Places by Robert Macfarlane; and Parker Palmer's The Courage to Teach.

I would vote for At Swim-Two-Birds, by Flann O'Brien, as the most hilarious books I have ever read, and Desert Solitaire, by Edward Abbey, as one of the most profound.
