          I am excited to be teaching 7th grade science at Curtis Middle school for my third year! I did my student teaching at the Allen High School and had a great experience. I believe Allen ISD has a lot to offer its students, faculty, and community and I am excited to be part of such a professional learning community. 

     

          I went through the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) LeoTeach program at Texas A&M University of Commerce. In addition I also pursued and obtained a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry. My wife, Rebecca, also attended A&M University of Commerce and is a teacher herself. We are both very dedicated to education!

     

          The study of Science in grade 7 is interdisciplinary in nature; however, much of the content focus is on organisms and the environment. At least 40% of the class involves laboratory and field investigations in which students will be using critical thinking skills to analyze data and solve problems. Students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in Science Fair; an outside of class scientific research project.
