I have a PhD in physical chemistry. I have taught courses at the college level. I am currently working as a research scientist in physics and chemistry. I hold Pennsylvania teaching certificates in physics chemistry and math. I am currently taking graduate-level education courses to learn more about instructional technologies in the classroom. I plan to teach high school chemistry in the next year or so. I love to teach. I connect with young people very well and am very good at getting abstract principles across. I believe in student centered learning and love to teach by example. On the personal side, I love sports animals and almost everything outdoors. Most of all, I love my wife Elizabeth. We have been married for over 25 years and she is the best thing in my life.
