I am an Associate Professor in Humanities & Fine Arts at Chattanooga State. I teach HUM 2130 Mythology and ENGL1010/1020 Composition I/II. I have been a full time member of the faculty since 1992. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I am the division webmaster.
I am a first generation college student. The only "professional" people I knew about in my family were an uncle who was a master barber, a great-grand uncle who had been an itinerant minister, and a third cousin who was a lawyer. Outside of my family, the only professionals I knew included medical doctors, ministers, my teachers, and middle management supervisors.
Prior to teaching, I have worked as a farm hand, a camp counselor, a truck driver, a printer, a dock worker, an order selector, a fork lift driver, and an inventory control clerk. For most of my life, I have been a student.
