Professor, Researcher,Presenter, Author, Consultant, Study Abroad Faculty
I am an associate professor of Social Studies Education in the College of Education at Northern Arizona University. I believe in experiential learning. We meet people, visit places, listen to one's stories are immersed in cultures and take away lifelong lessons.
I am grateful for my best teachers: my grandparents, Mr. Robert Cosby (WWII and Korean War Veteran and educator) and Ernest Michel, friend, mentor, and Holocaust Survivor (pictured above).
My research interests include Teacher Education, Education Reform Policy, Visual Art: From a Kids' Point of View, and Personal Narratives that Teach Historical Events and my twenty-five year passion: Teaching Through Sports.
