Welcome to my SLPS teacher web page! If you are a student or family of a student - I am excited to be working with you for the upcoming school year! I have an account on Schoology where I post lecture slides, information packets, outlines, and homework (if needed). Your student will have hard copies of the assignments and either a textbook or an e-book to utilize. Schoology is not meant to replace distributing materials to the students, but is there in case something gets lost, more resources are needed, or your child misses class and needs to keep up. The students are given an access code - please just email me if I need to send the information again!
I really enjoy science, but I don't love science just for the sake of being a "science nerd." The value, as I see it, is learning different ways to think and tackle problems. If done correctly, you can take a knowledge set, approach some unknown variables, and make some predictions how the world will operate. That's the real power of science.
I am married to my wife since June 2000. We have two children - a 13 year old son and a 10 year old daughter. We have 3 pets - 2 guinea pigs and a parakeet (I really, REALLY like birds). Outside of the classroom, hobbies include running, hiking, and barbecue. This is my 2nd year in teaching and my 2nd year at McKinley. I'm very happy to be here!!!
