I grew up in Arkansas but worked 27 years in education in Missouri. I've been a construction worker, a journalist, a teacher, an athletic director, a principal, and a communications director. I write about matters such as learning, growing, insights, history, sports, and the meaningful experiences that we all share in life. I enjoy writing, and people tell me that I'm good at it. But it doesn't matter what they say. What really matters is what you think. My hope is that you find something here that is interesting or thought-provoking or educational. Or just plain enjoyable.
