Director of the Learning Center since 1978 and until 2001, I was the Writing Center. When a cadre of trained peer tutors were ready to become the Writing Center part of the Learning Center, I was overjoyed. Since that time, I have supervised the day-to-day operations of the Writing Center. A graduate of Juniata College in Pennsylvania (A.B.), the University of Pittsburgh (M. Litt.), and Northern Illinois University (Ed.D.), I have taught in secondary schools in New Orleans and Cincinnati and at the College of Du Page and Benedictine University in Illinois. At Elmhurst, I have taught both Composition and Literature courses.
