I'm a science teacher from Catonsville, MD. I currently teach STEM and AP Biology at North County HS in Glen Burnie, MD. This fall will mark the start of my 23rd year in education. In addition to Maryland, I have also taught in Minnesota and North Carolina. I earned my B.A. in biology from Gustavus Adolphus College and my M.Ed. in science education from the University of Minnesota.
My interests in education include the use of technology and growth mindset. I authored the SAT Subject test in Chemistry for Albert.io which includes over 500 practice questions and can be found here. The videos posted on my YouTube channel and my contributions to Socratic.org have helped millions of science students around the world. Some of my other work related experiences include mentoring student teachers and as an instruction coach with Breakthrough Twin Cities. I am certified as a Level 1 track and field coach by USATF and coached state champion sprinters in Maryland.
Outside of teaching I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and two children.
