About Michael

I love history and especially Bible history. I was in the Air Force for 20 years. I lived in England, Germany and Greece. I collected coins, cameras, maps and other things. I was a special needs teacher for 20 years. I taught students in all grades with learning disabilities, and mentally challenged children and adults. I love to travel, and have been to 44 states and places like Israel, Latvia, Korea, former Czechoslovakia, former East and West Germany, Japan, and many more European countries. As a boy, I looked at national Geographic maps of the world and I have many places I'd like to go, like Zimbabwe and Chile. I love astronomy and physical science. I love science tricks and show my students lasers and other cool gadgets I've collected. I have solar gadgets that show the power of the sun.

My goal is to teach my love of learning to you. Life is a learning lab. It is your choice. You can learn about or as much as you want about anything. My favorite thing to learn about is our creator's wonders and how I can serve him better.

I look forward to meeting you to find out what you like.
