I am the CCA Secondary Science Teacher. God is the reason I am here. I was picking up books because my daughter was out sick. I knew CCA was looking for a science teacher and asked, “What would it take to teach science?”. Apparently, I asked the right person at the right time because I started shortly after that. Although it was a simple question the path leading to it was long. I have a very technical background starting with nuclear power on a submarine and a Mechanical Engineering Technology Degree from Penn State. Next, I married a wonderful woman who is my best friend. I programmed computers and spent many years releasing software and managing change documentation for engines. During those years we started a family.
I believe my history and all the choices I made lead me to CCA. I enjoy science, especially physical science. I love connecting with students especially when I see the light of understanding turn on during class. My other interests include science fiction movies, comic books, and dad jokes. My current family consists of a wonderful wife, spectacular daughter, a dog, 5 cats and 10 chickens.
