Lancaster Middle School

Classroom Team:

Tell us about yourself!

I’ve been teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Career technical courses to middle school students for the last 12 years. The courses i currently teach are computer solutions, digital applications, and digital technology foundations. I decided to teach because I believe that it’s important that youth are properly educated so that they can become productive citizens in an ever growing society. I’m also being coaching football and track for the last 15 years.

What is your favorite part of the Future Goals™program? How do you see STEM in the game of hockey?

My favorite part is the students learning about angles and math formulas to contribute to the success of a hockey player enhancing their skills.
