EducationBA, History/German- University of Florida 2006
M.Ed, Secondary Education-University of Florida, 2007
Doctoral Candidate, Administrative & Policy Studies- University of Pittsburgh (ABD, working on dissertation, anticipated defense date-December 2016)
ExperienceI have taught everything from 9th Grade ELL World History to Social Foundations of Education at the University of Pittsburgh. I have finished my doctoral coursework at Pitt and am presently working on my dissertation. I presently teach German II-AP German at Northside High School, and was named a finalist for County Teacher of the Year in Spring 2016.
I hold professional VA Certification in Social Studies 7-12 and German K-12, and am comfortable teaching all elements of reading and writing. I helped many students from other countries at Pittsburgh with graduate-level reading comprehension and academic writing. I have published academic articles and presented my research in STEM & Liberal Arts Education Policy in the US and Germany.
I would like to give back to my community by tutoring students in their areas of need.
HobbiesI used to coach high school football in Polk County, FL, and I'm a huge University of Florida sports fan.
I enjoy going to baseball games, and I'm a big nerd with baseball statistics and fantasy sports (baseball & football). While in Pittsburgh, I was a season ticket holder for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Go Buccos!
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling; my wife and I honeymooned in Europe. I've been to over a dozen European countries and studied abroad at the Univerität Mannheim while in college.
My wife and I enjoy hiking the trails around Roanoke, whenever she can get a break from the OR as a surgeon at Carilion. We recently purchased our first home, and I'm looking forward to exploring the vast world of Home Depot.
I see academic tutoring as a way to give back to my community and help kids with their educational goals. Education has been a driving influence in my life, and I hope to share my love of learning with all my students.
