Starting year 22 and loving it! I am a graduate of The University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!) and earned my M.Ed. in Mathematics Education in 2001. I am currently a doctoral student at Virginia Tech studying Integrative STEM Education.
I have taught in both public and private schools, undergraduate and graduate level college courses and have held positions as a classroom teacher, technology coordinator, and the Principal of a High School. I currently serve as lead mentor of the HHS Governor's STEM Academy FIRST Robotics FTC teams.
My wife is an Associate Professor at JMU and we have two kids and two dogs named Tubby and Jasper. My hobbies include going to UGA football games as much as possible, juggling, robotics, math, and starting projects at home and never finishing them. I am looking forward to working with you this year!
One of my favorite quotes:
“Grades may be useful for communicating where students are in relation to each other, and it is fine to give them at the end of a semester or term, but if they are given more frequently than that, they will reduce the achievement of many.”
