I was born in the state of Wisconsin many, many years ago. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire with a B.S. in physics and chemistry. In 1989, after 3 years of teaching physics in Wisconsin, I made the move from cold and snow for the warmth of Arizona. I attended ASU and earned a M.EdA because I thought the logical move of a teacher was to become an adminstrator. Silly me.
I came to Mountain View in 1989 and am presently in my 24th year of teaching physics. I am the Advanced Placement physics teacher of both B and C and on occassion have taught general physics as well. Fourteen years ago I took over the Academic Decathlon program at Mountain View and in those 14 years have helped our teams win 8 state championships never finishing lower than 5th in the nation. It has been a great run - so far.
When I am not teaching at Mountain View, I can also be found online with Rio Salado Community College teaching PHY 101 and at Scottsdale Community College teaching PHY 111 and 112. I have been published by the Educational Management Group, Pearson Publishing and am now working on curriculum for Rio Salado. To say physics is my life is a serious understatement.
I can be found in my classroom all day and am willing to help all physics students during the second lunch period and after school until 4:00 p.m.
