    Biography:  My wife Heather, who is a teacher at Berlin Elementary, and I live deep in the woods of Central City, close to the old Ship Motel near the Bedford County line, so I have about a 45-minute commute to Rockwood.  I have been a teacher for nearly twenty years.  Believe it or not, I was an English teacher at Berlin HS for six years and I am certified in 6-12 English and Communications.  I went back to college for two years to become certified in K-12 Technology Education.  Teaching Engineering and Technology is fun, exciting, and challenging each day and it is a perfect fit for my talents and personality.  I work with students in grades 7-12.  Each period of the day, I teach a different course:  Technical Design, Materials Processing / Manufacturing, Energy & Power Systems, Welding, Invention & Innovation 7th Grade, Technology Systems 8th Grade, Foundations of Technology 9th Grade!  In addition, I also get to work with the Life Skills students who maintain the vending machines and recycle paper boxes and build projects to sell at the Christmas Store.  My Engineering & Technology Club participates in a variety of building projects for the school and community and we manage multiple booths at the yearly Bonfire.  Each year, the club participates in an overnight field trip when we tour a manufacturing facility and other related STEM venues.  I am also responsible for after-school community service and the adviser for Soph-Senior and the Prom.  RASD is a GREAT place to learn!
