Physics is AMAZING and I love sharing my excitement for this subject with students and helping them develop high level critical thinking skills. 

  • My family has a fun Halloween/Christmas Tradition.  Each year we dress up in some sort of theme, take pictures at Halloween and then turn the image into our Christmas card.  The picture below is my family in 2018, embracing our inner dragons :) .

  • I'm also the Head Boys and Girls Cross Country Coach here at GOHS, and coach the Distance Events for Track and Field.  I personally love to run and spend time training for races, and I'm excited to share that passion for running excellence with our talented athletes.  Currently, I have run 27+ full marathons, with 10 of them being the Boston Marathon.   I have been invited to run the Abbott World Marathon Majors Age Group Championships and, of the 6 Marathon Majors, I have run Boston and Chicago.  I will be running Berlin and New York this Fall.

    I am grateful to have run the Boston Marathon in 2013, 2014, 2015, 1017, 2018 and will be returning in 2019.
