After receiving my degrees from ASU, I taught secondary school for approximately 5 years....teaching science, coaching, and eventually becoming a High School Principal at Westside High School, Jonesboro.  In 1985, I left education to begin pharmaceutical sales. After surviving in this competitive world for almost 26 years with the same company, I took early retirement. During the 25+ years as a sales rep, most years I taught at the college level in the evenings.  Union University, East Arkansas Community College, and Arkansas State University were the schools where I taught the most during this time.  After early retirement, I could devote a lot more time to teaching and my teaching load has increased every year. It now includes online classes along with teaching lectures and labs in the traditional setting. I'm having the time of my life!
