I absolutely love sharing my knowledge and experiences with other educators. I have been a public high school math and computer applications teacher for over three decades and I have helped my wife homeschool our two children all the way through high school. I am very passionate about serving my students and attempting to keep up with integrating as much technology as I can within the parameters of my curriculum. I have especially enjoyed teaching adults as I love to hear how creative they get with taking the things that I share with them and integrating them into their own classrooms or work situations. I have learned more myself through my use of Twitter than any other professional development in my career. It’s one of those things that you have to not only try, but learn to use that will make it professionally productive.
Professional Experience: I have taught high school math for 25 years at 3 different high schools and computer application courses for the past 12 years.
Scholarly Interests: I am currently pursuing teaching online professional development courses for other teachers to take.
