TEACHING EXPERIENCE

12 years in NYS public education. I have taught (and continue to teach) Regents level Earth Science, Special Education Earth Science, Honors Earth Science, Astronomy, College Astronomy, Virtual High School meteorology, and I serve as director of our school's planetarium where I instruct K-5 students and host pre-K visitations.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I think a great classroom isn't always a quiet classroom. If students are interested, there isn't a need to worry about discipline nearly as much!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

SUNY Oneonta's Best and Brightest Award SUNY Oneonta's Oustanding Senior Award Provost's award for academic excellence (4.0 gpa) Multiple honor societies and professional memberships

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

SUNY Oneonta - Adolescent Education, Earth Science 7-12 (cum laude graduate) 3.62 gpa Mt. St. Mary College - Special Education Earth Science 7-12 (summa cum laude graduate) 3.97 gpa

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys. I love doing anything outdoors! I am actively using my knowledge of both science content and special education teaching practices to create clear, meaningful lessons, worksheets, labs, activities, and presentations.
