TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am entering my eighth year as a teacher in Columbus, Ohio. My experience is primarily working in high-need schools where student engagement and literacy are a great need. To compensate, I have worked to create math projects and activities that are both mathematically rigorous and engaging the students. In my experience I often felt the concepts were lost when I taught other activities that were meant to engage. At the forefront of my work is math rigor that prepares students for standardized tests. In addition to teaching, I also have served as an assistant high school administration and an elementary school principal.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student engagement by any means necessary. I have taught at an innovative STEM school (where I also served as 9th Grade Curriculum Coordinator) and an International High School (where I serve as Seminar Coordinator), both of which promote cross-curricular collaboration, project-based, inquiry learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

2011 Award for Professional Leadership (awarded by teaching staff). Nominated for State of Ohio's International Educator of the Year (2013)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor's degree in mathematics from Wright State University and a Master's from Ohio State in Educational Policy and Leadership and I just started the Ph.D in STEM Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Most importantly I am a husband of 6 years and a father of 2 little ones, Logan (4) and Leah (2). Yes, this pays for the diapers... and the wipes if it's a good month. Check out my blog at www.21stcenturymathprojects.com
