I am a TAG science teacher. I am in the Talented and Gifted (TAG) Department at Johns Creek High School and also teach science courses. I joined the faculty at JCHS the first year it opened. Before that, I taught in Fulton County at Centennial High School. Before teaching in Fulton County, I taught in DeKalb County at Druid Hills High School.
I am Broad Field Certified in Science (6-12) and also In-Field Gifted Certified by the State of Georgia. I am AP certified by the College Board to teach AP Physics and AP Chemistry. In addition, I have earned the certification of "Master Teacher" by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. I have a Bachelors Degree in engineering from GA Tech and a Masters Degree in Materials Science and Engineering from North Carolina State University. I have earned my education specialist certification through my work at GA State University where I am ABD (all but dissertation) for PhD in Science Education.
I have extensive work experience in the business world prior to changing careers to education. Most of my work has been in Information Technology as a Project Manager. I have worked for Coca-Cola USA and for Genuine Parts Company here in Atlanta.
Some of the science classes that I have taught include AP Physics C, AP Physics B, College Prep Physics, Honors Chemistry, Honors Biology, Physical Science, and Environmental Science. Some of the TAG seminars that I have taught include String Theory, Stock Market Challenge, and Freshman Focus.
In addition to teaching classes and seminars, I have sponsored clubs and also coached sports. Some of the clubs that I have sponsored include the Science Olympiad and the Physics Bowl. I coach boys tennis at Johns Creek HS where we are the current Region and State Champions!!
