Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to be working with your students as the STEM teacher at Rutledge Hall. While this is my first year in the Lincolnwood School District, this is my tenth overall year of teaching. I taught second grade for 6 years, and STEM to second through fifth graders for 3 years. I love spending time outside swimming, hiking, or just relaxing with my wife and two kids. I am looking forward to teaching your students how to solve problems and collaborate like scientists and engineers through the use of the Project Lead the Way Launch program. Please see the "My Classroom" page for updates.
I have three main goals for your students this year in STEM:
1. Use all of the steps of the engineering design process to solve problems and analyze the results.
2. Positively collaborate with groups in order to develop the best solution for the group.
3. Use evidence to support claims verbally and in writing.
Please feel free to contact me throughout the year with questions, concerns, or ideas. I look forward to hearing from you.
