I used to be a design engineer. Now I'm an elementary school math teacher. Conference calls have been replaced with parent conferences. Product testing has given way to standardized testing. Instead of business cards, I now pass out report cards. The only thing that hasn’t changed noticeably is the maturity level of the people surrounding me all day.
I work in Dallas Texas with a very diverse, at times frustrating, at times inspiring group of kids. I also write on the side. Mostly about said kids and my interaction with them. I channeled a lot of my first year into my book, Learn Me Good. The sequel, Learn Me Gooder, came about rather naturally about three years later.
I also enjoy college basketball (Go Duke!), Stephen King books, far too many movies and television shows to name, and Jeopardy -- you may have seen me win the 2013 Teachers Tournament!
