About Me

    Much of my recent scholarly activity has been in the form of pedagogically-oriented presentations at national conferences.  I have also an article entitled “Twelve steps to effective classroom teams ... and beyond” under review with the Journal of the Academy of Business Education.  Two other papers, entitled "Killer Jobs: The Dark Side of Being a Physical Education Instructor" and “Roar of the Crowd:  Strategies to Address Noise-Related Safety Concerns in Sport“ have been revised and resubmitted to Strategies and Journal of Legal Aspects of Sport, respectively.  Those papers discuss employers’ obligation to provide safe work environments for their employees and have informed my teaching of business ethics.  With the publication of those three papers, I will be academically qualified by Fall 2014.
