I served for 14 years as a Russian and Arabic linguist in the U.S. Army and now teach Arabic at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay. I have also been teaching Arabic and Russian at St. Norbert College since 2008. I am currently a candidate in UWGB's award-winning education program, seeking teacher licensure in the area of Middle Childhood through Early Adolescence (ages 6-12/13). I plan to complete my student teaching in the Fall of 2012. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Foreign Area Studies with an Emphasis in Arabic and Russian. I am married and have four children.
