Thank you for spending a little time to get to know me. I am a husband and father of two. I graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Civil Engineering and later earned a Masters degree in Education from the University of Phoenix, ironically in a classroom based program from a primarily on-line university. I have been fortunate enough to become a teacher after exploring a couple of other careers including ten years as a professional engineer. I am an Eagle Scout, love the outdoors, am a complete science geek, and have a wide range of science related t-shirts and gizmos that tend to find there way into my classroom. I am one of the advisors for the Mountain Range High School Science Club and our Robotics Club. I strive to install a love for science in students and open their minds to the idea that all science disciplines are intimately integrated.
