I am an experienced teacher, principal and curriculum coordinator 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 engaging curriculum and activities that are both rigorous and engaging to students. In addition to teaching, I also have served as an International Seminar Coordinator, an assistant high school principal at an International High School, an elementary school principal at a Spanish Immersion School and a K-12 curriculum coordinator. In the English universe, I have won awards as a Screenwriter. No big deal, my films never made it to production.
Student engagement by any means necessary. I have been selected as a founding teacher at both an innovative STEM high school and an International High School. Both experiences promoted cross-curricular collaboration, project-based and inquiry learning.
2011 Award for Teacher Professional Leadership. Nominated for State of Ohio's International Educator of the Year (2013)
I have a Bachelor's degree in education from Wright State University and a Master's from Ohio State in Educational Policy and Leadership and I have started a Ph.D
Most importantly I am a husband to MacKenzie and a father of five little screenwriters, Logan (12), Leah (10), Cara (6), Callie (4), and Emmy (1). Join the Facebook page at this link
