I've been teaching for twenty five years, and I'm loving it, even more today than yesterday. My ultimate goal is to provide educational leadership, supervision and academic instruction in science education for a public or private college, university or school district. I consider myself a life long learner and I'm always looking to learn something new to enhance my ability in the classroom.
I've completed all but my dissertation for a doctorate in secondary science education at Temple University. I have an M.Ed.(87) in secondary science from Temple University and an M.B. A.(81) from American International College, Springfield Massachusetts. In addition I have two undergraduate degrees, a B.S.(78) in mathematics and comprehensive science from Wilberforce University in Ohio and a B.ChE.(78) in chemical engineering from the University of Dayton, also in Ohio.
I currently possess Pennsylvania State Secondary School Certification in Chemistry, General Science and Science Supervisory 1

There I taught at Chester High School (84), Smeadly Middle School (88), and Pulaski Middle School (90). I also served as the disctrict science coordinator for the Abington Heights School District in Clark's Summit PA, from 95-97.
