Ed is an avid wild-berry picker, a trout fisherman, and an aficionado of Adirondack North Country history and lore. He believes that change in education is always one or both of two things, absolutely essential or absolutely inevitable. He wants St. Lawrence graduate teachers, counselors, and educational leaders to be in the forefront of that change-making.
"It is an absolute joy to teach future teachers, counselors, and administrators. Their influence is far-reaching; it's very rewarding to be a part of that influence. If any of you potential SLU students out there would like to talk about a career in education, please contact me."
