TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I went into the Navy at an early age and with the technical training received in the military, I became employed by various companies that dealt with power generation, industrial control, and nuclear medicine. I spent part of this time as a technical trainer, developing sales and training literature for the companies. I went back to school and received my Bachelor Degree from the University of Missouri – St. Louis in Mathematics. I always wanted to teach and after marrying my wife, we decided to pursue my teaching career in Texas. I moved to Dallas and became certified to teach in the third largest school district in the United States working with inner city students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Students learn when they are emotionally involved and active, participant in the learning process.
