Hello parents and students! This is my first year teaching at Columbus JHS and I am very happy to be here. Originally from San Antonio, I have degrees from the University of Texas (Austin), Durham University (UK) and California Western (San Diego). I have been teaching in Houston for over fifteen years, and in middle school for seven of those years. My wife Sheryl is also a teacher here at the High School (English)!
My goal this year is to prepare my students for the future. Of course, that includes doing their best on the Science STAAR test, but it also includes developing a knowledge of, and a love of, science, in our lives and in the world around us.
I hope to get to know each of my families well, and to instill in my students, a life-long love of education.
