I recently retired as director of adult faith development programs for my church in Osprey, Florida, where I led programs related to the intersection of science and faith, ecological justice, feminist spirituality, and liberation theology, as well as, contemplative photography and book club. I also led women’s retreats.
Now, I am trying to wait patiently in this time of quiet and isolation to see what surprises God has next in store!
My prior university teaching began in teacher education, then, continued in engineering education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. From 2000 to 2019, I consulted with universities in more than 25 countries, concentrating on universities in Latin America. I gave workshops on curriculum design, the improvement of teaching and learning, and assessment and evaluation.
I love teaching, travel, photography, and books. Writing, for me, is difficult and less enjoyable. Writing Reflections from My Lanai lets me share all my loves with you, and forces me to be disciplined about writing. By the way, now that I live in Florida, the “back porch” is now a lanai!
