From dropping balls off the balcony, to shooting rockets, to dropping eggs on a moving target, to building catapults-we like to have fun in physics.  Physics is all about recognizing the way everything works and moves in the world around us.

About Me

I'm a graduate of BYU with a degree in Physics teaching and a minor in math.  I've been teaching at GHS since fall of 2015, and love what we've been able to accomplish here with Physics.  I love physics and enjoy seeing the principles of physics in all aspects of my life.  I have 4 kids whom I am raising to be science nerds too.

My Educational Philosophy:

The classroom should be a warm and welcoming environment in which students are actively engaged with the material. My class is structured around letting students take responsibility for their own learning. I provide context and structure, illustrate key concepts, work sample problems, and am a constant resource for the students, but the hard work of learning is theirs. Students should be constantly doing and thinking, which I encourage through discussion, laboratories, guided inquires, and problems that challenge students to apply concepts to novel situations. To foster meaningful interaction with and among students, I treat them with respect and expect them to treat each other with respect. I encourage students to share their understanding of the material during class and use these informal interactions to tailor my teaching to both individuals and the full class.
