Dr. Ernest J. Bursey
For Dr. Bursey, the addiction to teaching started early. He taught one section of a freshman religion class while a senior in high school. The addiction has endured — it has been 55 years since that first assignment at Thunderbird Academy in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has been a faculty member at ADU since 2001 as professor of religion. He has lived all over the U.S., including three New England states, central and eastern Arizona, northern and southern California, east Los Angeles, Michigan, eastern Washington state, and now in the Southeast in central Florida for the past 13 years. So home is either nowhere or everywhere.
