Hello My Name Is...

I am excited for this, my first year at University Academy and my first year as a lead English teacher. Last year, I was a resident teacher through the Kansas City Teacher Residency, and before that I practiced as a criminal defense lawyer. I have an undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of California-Berkeley and a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania. In between earning those degrees, I worked as a scientist for a biotechnology company and an English teacher in the Peace Corps (Bulgaria). I love spending time with my wife, Colleen, and two-year-old daughter, Libby. If I had more free time, I would also love playing guitar, running, and doing crossword puzzles. My passion in education is helping students develop and communicate complex thoughts. I think that's what English class is all about, but I am looking forward to learning with students and refining that definition.
