Any of you taking courses from me will quickly find out that I have an intense interest in butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera).  For anyone interested in more information about the butterflies and moths of Georgia, check out my other website, Georgia Lepidoptera

Drop/Withdrawal (Fall 2023)


Here's a little background, in case you are interested. I lived for the first 18 years of my life in Liberty, Missouri, northeast of Kansas City, and graduated from high school there. I attended the University of Kansas (KU) in Lawrence, completing my undergraduate degree in Systematics & Ecology (Biology) in 1983. I continued at KU for my graduate degrees, ultimately completing my doctorate in 1990, also in Systematics & Ecology. I came to Dalton State College in the Fall of 1990, and have been teaching Principles of Biology and Human Anatomy & Physiology here since that time. I also teach the Entomology course (Insect Biology) in the fall semester of each year.  More recently, since the addition of the four-year degree in biology, I have been teaching Evolution and Ecology as well.
