Courses Taught

World Regional Geography

I like to think of myself as a professional student. I may be the one at the front of the classroom, but I learn as much about the world through my students as I do from any text I've ever read. Understanding the "who", "what", "why" and especially "where" of the world is what a geographer strives for. I can only hope that, by the end of the course, students are as enthusiastic about geography as I am!
