Welocme to my home page. Originally from Ohio, I moved to Arizona in 1993 and attended Arizona State University. I worked for Tempe Union from 2001- 2013 then transferred to Chandler Unified district in 2013. I have taught Physics for the last fourteen years utilizing the Modeling Method of Physics. I am looking forward to teaching Core Physics and AP Physics I this year and hope to see continued growth in the physics department.

My Education and Professional Background

In 2001 I graduated from Arizona State University with a BAE Physics degree. In 2003 I worked on a MEd in Curriculum and Instruction at ASU and am currently completing research for a MNS Physics degree.

My Educational Philosophy

Physics is not a spectator sport. Everyone can learn Physics if they try and learn to use a New(tonian) way of thinking!
