After 20 years of covering sports in the Indianapolis area, I found myself teaching high school journalism in New Castle, Indiana. That was a decade ago. This is my eighth year at Ben Davis, and I love the creativity displayed by the students here. Teaching newspaper, yearbook and photography is the culmination of a 30 year career in journalism for me. I hope to pass on my passion for responsible journalism to the next wave of would-be journalists.
