I've been a Chicago Public Schools teacher for 7 years now, and I love every minute that I spend with my kids. I've taught Drama, ELA, and now Computer Literacy/STEAM. I love having a fun, cleanly decorated classroom so that my students have the information they need without facing a visual overload every day!
Students are individuals, not numbers or data points. Like everyone, my students learn best when they're having fun and working on something that they know is important to their lives. I like to integrate my students' interests and ideas as much as possible, so that we all end up learning from each other!
Best Tattoos: Awarded by my students, 4 years running.

I love my wife and my dog, I love designing things on my computer, I'm teaching myself how to carve and whittle, and I always, always love a good book.
