Welcome to Coe College! I’m looking forward to teaching and learning with you. In my many years at Coe College, students and instructors have shared cultural insights and had fascinating discussion. I’ve enjoyed traveling to interesting places around Coe College with my students as well as celebrating holidays and cooking together. I’ve taught English and French in Thailand and in Japan and remember that after living in those countries, my horizons expanded. You are very lucky to have this opportunity to expand your horizons as well. I will do everything I can to help you meet your goals at Coe College. My office door is always open, and I invite you to stop by for a chat at any time.
