My academic background is in anthropology and English/creative writing/Native American literature. I love languages and have studied several, including Navajo, Puget Salish (Lushootseed) and Chinese Mandarin. My courses are typically theme-based, often on the Salilsh Sea Bioregion and Native American case studies. I'm also a strong advocate for experiential learning and field study; for example, from 1992-97, I was the executive editor for the Journal of Experiential Education;  thus, many of my classes will offer field trips.
