I was featured in Eastern Illinois University's Alumni magazine this month. Daphne Griffin interviewed me a few months ago for the article and I had a great time talking to her and catching up on things that are happening at EIU. She wrote the article, did the graphic layout, and used photos that Jay Grabiec had taken when he visited my studio and classroom at UWM. I was glad to be able to share some of the insight that my first Metals professor, David Griffin, had shared with me during my time at EIU. I can honestly say that Dave changed my life with his teaching and that he had one of the largest impacts on me becoming a teacher. I am forever indebted to him.
Thanks to Daphne and Jay for making this article happen!
