I am trained as an electrical engineer and was fortunate enough to spend a rewarding career in that field. I recently decided to change careers in order to teach science and math in high school. I have completed my teaching license program at UMass Boston and earned my M.Ed degree and a MA license to teach Physics and Math.
My involvement in education has been prevalent throughout my engineering career through volunteering at local, regional and state level science fairs as a judge.
My teaching style closely resembles a coaching relationship with my students. It is intended to teach them enough facts and application techniques in order for them to not only be able to figure out the solution to an assigned problem but also to be able to see how that knowledge and ability applies in some real-life situations.
My personal goal as a teacher is to help students see the benefits and challenge in science and engineering careers so that some of them will consider that as a potential vocation later in their lives. This was my primary reason for making a career change.
I have just completed my first year teaching Physics at the Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School located in South Easton, MA.
Since I am done with school for the summer, I am available for the next several weeks to do any tutoring.
