This is my 14th year teaching in Baltimore City Public Schools and 3rd year at ACCE teaching Physics. Prior to ACCE I was a middle school math teacher for 11 years teaching at the former William H. Lemmel Middle School and Afya Public Charter School. Before teaching in Baltimore City I was a Peace Corps Volunteer and taught Physics in Ghana, West Africa for 2 years. I am from rural southwestern Pennsylvania where my parents still live, and I now live in Remmington with my partner. I enjoy lifting weights and working out at Clipper City Fitness and reading, my goal is to read 50 books a year!
