Why I chose to be a teacher
After successfully owning and selling a business I pursued something I was very interested in which was science. I helped to create a fiber optic temperature measuring device to be sent on the Mars lander for NASA. Then me and my co-workers commercialized the device and found extremely useful applications for it in the oil and gas industry. After many years I felt as if I still wasn’t pursuing my true calling. Much reflection showed me that my best times were spent educating children. While an instructor in Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and coaching in the many different sports I have coached, I realized that these were the times I felt the most satisfaction from my work. I graduated with honors from both Texas State and ACC with a teaching degree and am feeling thrilled to be doing what I love the most. My teaching will involve showing our children that science is relevant to everyday life. That becoming educated in this area will help them to improve the qualities of their life by enhancing their understanding of the world around them. I know from experience that every child is different and learns in different ways. I will be using different methods of teaching each subject in our classroom to make our learning relative to every one of us. Please feel free to contact me at any time regarding your child. Thank you for your support.
