Science education is the field concerned with sharing science content and process with individuals not traditionally considered part of the scientific community. The learners may be children, college students, or adults within the general public; the field of science education includes work in science content, science process (the scientific method), some social science, and some teaching pedagogy. The standards for science education provide expectations for the development of understanding for students through the entire course of their K-12 education and beyond. The traditional subjects included in the standards are physical, life, earth, space, and human sciences.

I am the High School Biology and Environmental Science teacher here at AFSA. The part I love most about teaching science is the hands-on and engaging work that goes on here at AFSA. I look forward to a new year of helping students build the skills they need to be successful in high school and beyond. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my 4 dogs, bird watching, and just spending time in nature. I hope to share that love of spending time in nature with my students and get them to enjoy the outdoors.

Hi all! I am excited for another year of teaching and learning at AFSA. I hope to help students build scientific literacy and numeracy regardless of their future profession. I feel that AFSA has a fantastic educational program in place to foster these skills and prepare students to be contributing members of society. I believe that to be successful, students need grit and perseverance to overcome obstacles that come their way. When I am not teaching, I like to spend my time with my family (my wife Natalie, our son Finn, and our new dog Chip).
