I was born on a warm afternoon with the air dry and filled with the scent of wheat. After 55 moons, I began my formal education and quickly became known throughout the land. After completing my mental and physical metamorphosis, I made my journey to learn my trade. Five harvests and six fortnights later, I became a Spartan. Now, as a Spartan, I fight for my cause to the bitter end. 


In addition to teaching at West, I also teach at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC). I have taught Physical Science Concepts (SCI 265) during the summer, laboratory sections of Algebra-bases Physics (PHYS 220/221) during the evenings, Physics of Modern Medicine (SCED 531) and Laboratory, Field, and Studio Safety (SCED 530). UNC gives me a great opportunity to keep up to date with the latest in instructional techniques and access to modern equipment. 


I often get asked, "Which would win, an immovable object or an unstoppable force?" Here is the Answer
