I am now in my third year of teaching and still learning many things about what it means to be a teacher. I grew up in upstate New York and then moved to Kentucky, where I attended Asbury College (now Asbury University) and earned my B.A. in Biology and Secondary Education. I married in May of 2009 and then moved to Seoul, South Korea where I was the general chemistry and AP chemistry instructor. We moved back to the United States in June 2011, and I am currently working in Evansville, IN as a biology and chemistry teacher.
I am building a blogging platform through social media and education policy. I write frequently on using technology to enhance instruction and simple methods teachers can pick up and use immediately. I also comment on education policy and I advocate hard for open-internet policies in schools. A link to my blog is on the menu above.
Outside of school, I enjoy canoeing, camping, and hiking with my wife as well as reading and just taking it easy. Since moving to Korea, I’ve been to Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand both professionally and for leisure.
