Lecturer, Department of Physics
Central Michigan University
I am excited to participate in the RET program because it explores areas in engineering and applied physics. My undergraduate work was completed at Alma College (BS, Physics, minors in Mathematics and Natural Science, 2005). I taught at Alma High School for four years before leaving in 2010 to complete a Masters in Physics at Central Michigan University. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter.

Secondary Education - Integrated Science, Biology
Hello everyone! I am currently attending Central Michigan University to obtain a teaching certificate in Secondary Education. I am majoring in Integrated Science with a minor in Biology. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Crop and Soil Science from Michigan State University. I look forward to working on this project to further my science education as well as network with fellow students and education professionals! I grew up on a small sheep farm just outside of Mt. Pleasant and was very active in 4-H when I was growing up. I stay busy during the semester serving on the EHS vending committee and also as the president of the National Science Teacher's Association student organization. In my spare time I really enjoy cooking, cycling, spending time outdoors walking/hiking, and reading!
