About meI am originally from Killeen, Texas, and earned both a BA and MA in history from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. I earned my Ph.D. in Transatlantic History at the University of Texas at Arlington in May 2011. I have taught history at Temple College in Temple, Texas, since 2013.
About my library"'What shall I do with all my books?' was the question; and the answer, 'Read them,' sobered the questioner. But if you cannot read them, at any rate handle them and, as it were, fondle them. Peer into them. Let them fall open where they will. Read on from the first sentence that arrests the eye. Then turn to another. Make a voyage of discovery, taking soundings of uncharted seas. Set them back on their shelves with your own hands. Arrange them on your own plan, so that if you do not know what is in them, you at least know where they are. If they cannot be your friends, let them at any rate be your acquaintances. If they cannot enter the circle of your life, do not deny them at least a nod of recognition." — Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill
