Charlotte Mecklenberg Schools

Teaching is about caring, sharing, and daring! I am currently the elementary science specialist for a large urban/suburban school district ( 109 elementary schools). But I have also taught high school physics for 11 years, been with the US Coast Guard for 16 years ( 4 at the Academy, 12 years as an officer), worked 7 years as a project manager/engineer in industry, and 3 years as a "Mr Mom" in London England where I got hooked on teaching.

My interests include sports and I compete in Masters Track and Field in the 100,200,400, and Long Jump plus play senior softball and can still hit the ball over 300 feet on a good day.

I am a National Board Certified Teacher (AYA Science) and winner of several local, state, and national awards for teaching, including the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
