Tim, my husband, and I live in Grand Forks, North Dakota with our cat, Miles. I'm originally from southern Minnesota; Tim is from Illinois. We met while I was teaching at Turtle Mountain Community High School and Tim was managing the reservation's public radio station, KEYA. We married at the International Peace Garden in 1983. We have no children, but friends, family, and Miles keep us busy!
My professional interests are in education and psychology, especially the preparation of teachers, educational psychology, cognitive psychology, learning theory, and instructional design. Personal interests include reading, walking, watching good movies, and spending time with family and friends.
