    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I just updated some of the class information on January 13, 2021 to reflect the schedule. With some students back in class and some students still at home, the school hours and class hours have obviously changed.
    I want you to know that I am working very hard to make sure that the in-person and virtual students are getting my attention equally. It's hard to pull off. If I'm missing something, please send me a message. I will do my very best to address the issue.
    I have found that my students are will to roll with many of things that have come their way; I consider myself lucky to work with them! This year has not been easy, but honestly, the students make my job more enjoyable.
    This is my third year teaching, and my third year with SLPS. I am teaching AP Chemistry and Anatomy & Physiology. I'm excited to add AP Biology to my "bag of tricks" this year.
    For my students and parents, please email me. It is the best, most efficient way to reach me. My address is:
    As a former pediatrician, I hope to bring a lot of practical knowledge about science to the classroom. One of the best parts about teaching is helping students realize that science isn't as complicated as they think. Once they have a framework of how to think about things, the world just opens up. And we don't need a classroom to do that. This school year will be different, no doubt, but I'm optimistic about what we can accomplish.
    I am married to my wife since June 2000. We have two children - a 15 year old son and a 12 year old daughter. We have 4 pets - 2 guinea pigs, an 18 year old rescue conure (I really, REALLY like birds), and we just got a dog. Outside of the classroom, hobbies include running, hiking, and barbecue. This is my 3rd year in teaching and my 3rd year at McKinley. I'm very happy to be here!!!
