Most Memorable CCAC Experience

Watching one of my students, who had a very tough life and faced with much adversity, walk across the stage and receive her Criminal Justice degree. A few years later she obtained a job with federal law enforcement that she thought would never be possible.;


Why I Teach What I Teach

I have a passion for the Criminal Justice field and teaching. I have an opportunity to pass on what I have learned and prepare students for employment opportunities in the field. The priceless excitement when a former student tells me he/she has just obtained their "Dream Job."


Something People Might Not Know About Me

I am the biggest Pittsburgh Pirates fan and collect sports memorabilia.
