Who Am I?

  • I’m a 46-year-old married parent of three twice-exceptional kids, ages ~12, 10, and 7;
  • I’m a first generation Norwegian-American with three siblings;
  • I’m a former elementary school teacher and tenure-line professor, currently a part-time university lecturer;
  • I’m a prison education advocate, instructor, and volunteer;
  • I’m a long-time film lover and reviewer;
  • I’m a progressive liberal concerned about both extreme-right and extreme-left stances (let’s come together in the middle, please!);
  • I’m a life-long learner with a Rain Forest mind – a dabbler, reader, writer, musician, photographer, mentor, and lover-of-the-arts. [All photos on this site are taken by me, unless otherwise stated.]
