My passion is to launch students to become our next mathematicians, engineers and scientists. I am a GA certified T5 Teacher of 6-12 grade Physics, 6-12 grade Math with a Gifted In-Field Endorsement. I have taught 7th grade Math, 8th grade Math and Physical Science, 10th grade Physical Science, 11th grade Physics, AP Physics B and AP Calculus AB classes.
I was an AP Math and Science high school student and am grateful to those who taught me calculus and college freshman physics. Had the Internet been available ... This past year I have used MIT Online to learn String Theory; done passively (content watching and self-assigned problem solving).
I am a life long learner. It is a skill I acquired as a high school student. I used this skill as a new business development manager, a big ticket sales manager and an operational manager. In each job, technology was the foundation and refined best practices were developed, taught, refined and re-taught. Likewise effective teaching takes advantage of technology and best practices.
In preparation of becoming a teacher I substituted in local Middle Schools and High Schools. It was common for students whom I encountered to say, "Mr. D., we want you to be our teacher."
