Non-Teaching ExperienceI feel all the experiences I have had enhance my teaching.
my teaching style
My Teaching Style

In general, I use the formal classroom style of teaching but I spice it up with a varity of other intriguing methods such as:

  • Interactive learning through experiments and activities. (Thus “Active Chemistry”!)
  • Cooperative learning in groups with models, worksheets and problem sets.
  • Enduring understanding through games, demos and magic shows.
The formal courses:

AP Chemistry

AP Chem Seminar

Chemistry I

Information Technology

Active Physics

The fun courses

Chemistry of Cooking

Science and Math Skills

Earth and Space

Radio Broadcasting

Senior Project

This next year I will be teaching six classes of “Active chemistry”. This is a new program we are starting this year for all students and for all levels. In the past years, I have also taught:

teams coached at haverford high i believe in good competition even among the academic curriculum

Junior Varsity Golf

Boys Tennis Team

Cross Country Team


HiQ Academic Team

Science Olympiad

Enviroton Team

Teams Coached at Haverford HighI believe in good competition even among the academic curriculum
Ski Club

Ping-Pong Club

Chess Club

Activities Sponsored at HaverfordI believe the more you are involved with a student outside the classroom the better relation you will have with that student in the classroom.







Body Surfing

Water Skiing

Down Hill Skiing

Cross Country Skiing

Rock Climbing





Card Games

Board Games

RC Car Racing

RC airplanes




My Interests“Jack of all trades - master of none”I include these so that we might find something in common.
things learned at mcep this summer i will apply to my teaching next year

  • Pogil – I was very impressed how Dr. Roberts demonstrated this in his teaching of organic chemistry. I will integrate this into the “Active Chemistry” program. I just hope I can get my kids to do half the work that I did.
  • Lab-preps – I felt that I was far better prepared for the labs because we were required to do the pre-labs. I hope this will help my student to come to class prepared ready to do a lab.
  • Website – This was all new for me this year and I am really excited about trying to use an interactive website for my classes and activities.

i leave you with this thought

I leave you with this thought:

You don’t know if you can do it until you try and if you try you may find you can do miracles; so, “be the miracle”.
