I am very happy to be part of the CPS family. I have taught math at CPS since 2007. Recently, I have added a science endorsement to my license and am excited to pursue this new challenge. My past work as an engineer has allowed me to make the connection between mathematics and the real world. One of my goals is to show this connection to my students so that math becomes more than just another class. Outside of school, I enjoy listening to music, the outdoors, cooking, playing disc golf, and geeky strategy games, and of course my wife and two young kids.
