Tell us about your family.
I have a daughter and a son, both graduates of SRCS.
 
Who was an influential teacher for you, and why?
My high school biology teacher, who instilled in me a love for science.  He is in his late eighties and continues to substitute teach even today!  That is passion for your craft!  
 
What are your interests outside of work?
My favorite interests are cooking, reading, and all things DIY -- arts and crafts.
 
What is your favorite course to teach, and why?
My favorite courses to teach are life science and biology.  Learning through scientific inquiry is a reminder of how God, as creator and sustainer, has endowed us with the sacred task of caring for his creation.
