I have long combined a serious commitment to research with enthusiasm for teaching. While completing my PhD, I taught middle and high school students at Oakwood School, an independent school in southern California. Since coming to West Chester in 1996, I have developed classes in Soviet and Russian history as well as thematic courses that transcend national boundaries.
