My students inspire me to be better. This picture is of two of my students that worked on a really cool Rough Cut Project for English 130.
CSU, Chico English department. This is to the job that is a calling. I love my department, the excpetional people I work with and how I am inspired on a daily basis to be a better teacher, person, researcher.
This is my favorite flower. There is something about a hydrangea that touches my spirit. They seem both fragile and hearty at the same time. Their variety is always shocking from Victorian Lavender Lace, to Pop culture vibrant Pink. The blooms only show up in the warm season. They remind me of the uniqueness and intrepid personality of the human race.
Football. I've learned so much from my nephew Garett playing. The love of the game. The dynamics of a team. The heart of Friday Night Lights.
My dog, Petey. I love him.
It took me months to get this orchid to bloom.
Sometimes I need to be reminded that the world we live in requires action. I think sometimes our technology has allowed us to become lazy.
