Welcome to my web site, I have been teaching science at Homer High School for 20 years. I was a practicing mechanical engineer in the pulp and paper industry prior to my employment at Homer. I'm ready for an interesting 2013 - 2014 school year. In addition to two sections of regents physics, I'll be teaching concurrent enrollment physics through TC3 as well as a section of principles of engineering. I'm teaching the concurrent enrollment physics course for the tenth year now. Teaching the college level course continues to be a rejuvenating experience for me. I have been waiting to teach the principles of engineering course for 19 years and I'm (finally) getting the chance! It provides an enjoyable change of pace and keeps me excited about teaching each day.
