Description

Class Experience

Students learn the methods of prediction, testing, recording results, and improvement.  Students will be able to use hands-on activity using everyday items to create a fun and exciting experiments. 
I am a middle school and high school science and math teacher with 10 years of experience.  Additionally, I am a homeschooling dad of 13 +years who has four kids that are four different types of learners.    

I have the privilege to teach many subject areas, but chemistry and biology are my favorites as these apply to all other areas of science.  My opinion is that if a student understands major biochemical concepts, other sciences become more clear.  

I hold a MS and BS in the natural sciences and an MA in Counseling.

About Me

I am enthusiastic about helping students become life long learners!  My favorite question from students is: "what would happen if?"  Kids are naturally curious and my goal is to fuel curiosity via discussion and investigation with students.  One...
