Larimer Campus
Office Location

Mike moved to Fort Collins in August 2010 to teach History at the Larimer Campus after living and teaching in Tucson, Arizona for several years. He earned his Master’s degree in Environmental History at Northern Arizona University in 2002 and entered the teaching profession the following year.
Teaching Philosophy
History is sometimes seen as a dull, irrelevant discipline, but I believe that it is an exciting, contested arena of diverse opinions and interpretations. My goal is to encourage students to develop their own analyses and opinions about history and learn to express them effectively, and become outstanding critical thinkers and problem solvers in the process.
