This is my sixth year at BMSA and I can honestly say it will be like no other. Whatever happens this year, I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and working closely together to ensure the success of us all. BMSA is a natural home for me because I have had a lifelong interest in science and math topics and have been involved in science education for many years. At the same time, I've always had a love of reading and worked for many years as a bookseller. This balance of STEM and literature is reflected and emphasized in my classroom. As for my life outside of the classroom, I am married to a social worker and have twin daughters who started 7th grade this year. Because I came to teaching later in life, I have had the opportunity to work many different jobs. Some of my more memorable positions include being a tour guide at the Grand Canyon, a musician/band photographer, and a stay-at-home dad. Other than teaching, that last one was my favorite (although it's hard to beat the Grand Canyon for an "office").
