I am a U.S. Air Force veteran and a current science teacher at Joliet Central High School in Joliet, IL. I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a B.S. in Physics and an M.S.Ed. in Instructional Technology. The majority of my students come from low-income, diverse backgrounds which are underrepresented in science. My goal is to help more of those students find their way into STEM careers.


Grant Awarded in 2022: My Virtual Learning Success Story

COVID-19 fundamentally changed the world, but none more radically than through the classroom. As many areas made the quick migration from in-person classrooms to virtual ones, the way educators are able to connect with their students has transformed. My Virtual Learning Success Story is an award created to recognize those who were presented with a tough situation, and through the trials and tribulations of virtual learning, came out successful.
