35 years

I was hired in 1984 to teach in the Physical Activity Course Program (PAC). I also taught two pedagogy courses in Exercise Science and helped with supervision.  In 1992, I took over direction of the PAC Program.  I retired from full time work in 2013, when the program had grown to include 70 instructors and a yearly enrollment of over 80,000 students.  My greatest joys were hiring excellent instructors and watching them work their magic with students.  I also took pride in putting together a very complex schedule of classes.  I started teaching in the Faculty Staff Fitness Program in 1985, and I still teach one class each term.
