I was born and raised in South Africa. I graduated from the University of Natal and taught history at the high school level for sixteen years. I received my Masters Degree in Education from Eastern Washington University and my Doctorate in Social Studies Education from Washington State University. I started teaching at Gonzaga University in 1991 where I specialize in both elementary and secondary social studies methodology. Teaching is my passion. When I am not involved in teaching or writing for publications, I play golf, tennis and racquetball. I also enjoy travelling and incorporate my travel experiences into the courses I teach.
