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.
 
 
Pedagogy
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
