Welcome to Science and Engineering at SAP!
I have been teaching in SPPS since 1986 and this is my 14th year at SAP. I grew up on the Eastside of St. Paul and graduated from Harding High School a long time ago. The first 10 years of my career I was a sixth grade classroom teacher and have been a Science Specialist since that time. In addition to teaching at SAP, I work as a Research Fellow in the University of Minnesota STEM education department which enables me to incorporate the latest engineering education practices into our science units. I am driven by the curiosity and questioning that comes from the students when presented with a discrepant event or a lab that challenges a misconception.
During my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and 3 adult children. I also like following all of our Minnesota teams. Thank you for being part of the SAP community!
