I am excited to be back teaching the Cowboys and Cowgirls of Edna High School for my second year, specifically Physics, Forensic Science, and Anatomy & Physiology.  After an extremely busy summer, I am happy that classes are almost back in session (Ha ha, just kidding......or am I?)  I am also coaching the UIL Calculator team. This will be my seventh year of teaching science at the high school level. My wife is also teaching here at the high school as well as at the junior high. In addition to spending a ridiculous amount of time studying for college classes I also served in the US Army for three years.  My students seem to find it endlessly fascinating that I am originally from Canada and that I lived in the Philippines for a number of years, and that I have been to college three times!

I am hoping to pilot Google Classroom this year.  I will have a class set of Google Chromebooks that I will incorporate into my lessons.  Every student will have their own Google account, with e-mail, file storage and all of the Google tools for school (which closely mimic the Microsoft tools).   



Favorite quotes:

Ben Franklin- The used key is always bright

Socrates- Education is the best provision for old age

James Thurber- It is better to know some of the questions than all of the                                            answers

Arthur Conan Doyle- You see but you do not observe.  The distinction is clear.
