This year will be my 10th year as a teacher and first as a father. I am so proud to introduce my new daughter, Maylee Rose, to the HTHI community, and hope that she will get included in some of the class projects this year, haha!10 years… where has the time gone!During this time I have organized projects on forensic biology, biomimicry, animal enrichment, and more.I am very excited to be working with my new HTHI students this year, and helping them explore the world of biology through new projects and engaging labs. More about me: I am native to California, born and raised on the central coast. I received my bachelor’s degree at Azusa Pacific University, but did not start pursuing my passion for teaching science until after college. Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family, play games/sports, take photographs, and use Bitmojis. I also love to travel and experience the wide variety of human cultures and biodiversity our planet has to offer.
