Welcome to 5th grade! It's an important year as students transition from elementary to middle school and from childhood to adolesence.  This is my 7th year teaching and BMSA is a natural home for me because of a lifelong interest in science and math topics. 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 8th 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 for my daughters' first two years.
