I have been a teacher for 25 years. Most of this time has been spent teaching high school physics and Calculus but I have also taught most all math and science subjects in grades 6-12.
I teach a hands-on science class where students learn by doing. In my math and physics classes I like the students to understand what they learn and also practice. I try to make both math and science fun and enjoyable but also challenging and content rich.
