Hello! I'm very excited that I have the opportunity to teach your child in my Science class this year! I graduated from California State University Stanislaus in 2006 before moving to Tomball. I spent the following year subbing at different schools in Tomball until I was offered a full time teaching position at NIS. This will be my 12th year teaching at Northpointe. Wow...that means I'm gettin' old!
When I'm not teaching science at NIS I like to spend time with my family. I just celebrated my 6th wedding anniversary with my wife, Catherine. I have two kids. Alec is 17 and is a junior at TMHS. Autumn is 9 and is in third grade at WCES. I enjoy camping, hiking, attending church, and playing various musical instruments.
It's pretty simple: I want all my students to excel in Science.
Here are a few beliefs that drive what I do in my class:
- My students will perform better if they feel that I care about them.
- My students will perform better if they are excited about what we are doing in class
- My students will be excited about what we are doing if I'm excited about it
- Earning my students trust is extremely important
