TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently in my 37th year as a mathematics teacher. This includes stints in Michigan, Florida, and the past 13 years in California. I have taught courses ranging from Fundamental Math to Pre-calculus in varied settings: Honors Programs, Drop Out Prevention, Summer School, Night School, and two years in a boot camp for incarcerated teenagers.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a high-energy teacher who tries to share his love of mathematics with all students. I believe that students retain information when challenged to learn it through carefully designed, hands-on activities.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was awarded the Nancy Givens Award for Teaching Excellence in 1991. But to me, the most important awards are those generated by students. That is why being named Most Dedicated Teacher by the students of Roseville (California) High School is the most meaningful honor I have received.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I earned a Master of Science degree in Education Leadership from Nova Southeastern University (1992),and a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Western Michigan University (1979).

I am married and have one child. I enjoy outdoor activities like snowshoeing, hiking, and kayaking. I love all sports and currently play in an ice hockey league.
