I graduated from the University of Michigan MA-1969, BS-1967. Also the University of California at Berkeley PhD-1973.  I started teaching at Napa Valley College in the fall of 1969.  I've taught mathematics for the US State Department's Fulbright Program in England and Mexico.  Also a year at California State University-Sonoma.  I currently teach two courses each semester at NVC--Statistics and PreAlgebra.  These courses offer many interesting applications found in the news each term.  I have found evening students learn mathematics best when fortified by York Mint Patties and Dove Dark Chocolate.  I enjoy tennis, biking, wine, and Scrabble.
