This is my 6th year at PRA and my 11th year teaching physics. Before teaching I worked a number of interesting jobs: framing artwork, forklift operator, wildland firefighter, and whitewater river guide. I find teaching to be the most challenging of these jobs yet the most rewarding. My passion for physics started in high school. I went on to get a B.S. in Physics from the University of Puget Sound and then a Masters in Education from Colorado State University.
Physics is the most fundamental science. In class we will ask questions about the world and then attempt to answer those questions through observation, experimentation and modeling. What I really enjoy about teaching physics is watching students gain a deeper understanding of the laws of nature and how that can change the way they view the world. Physics helps develop problem solving skills that are useful regardless of career or study.
