NOHS STAFF MEMBER SINCE: 2003

I joined North Oldham in 2003, the school's inaugural year, after spending two years at South Oldham High School and several years at Louisville area high schools. I currently teach AP Physics I, AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Physics C Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism, and Advanced Topics in Physics.  Advanced Topics is a newly constucted class that focuses on the beginning of modern physics and current topics in physics.

I feel strongly that North Oldham is a college preparatory school that has grown over the few years to be the first or second best in the state. I enjoy setting high but achievable goals with the students and helping them become active in the education process. 

After school, I study higher level physics, try very hard to grow a varmint free, organic garden, and enjoy poker.

Advanced Placement Courses

A healthy student environment involves performance based academic achievement that most students find rigorous but rewarding. I compliment the students with high expectations that require them to strive for and commit to subject mastery. I challenge the students to think, and I engage them daily with light-hearted humor and thought provoking problems.

All AP students take the AP Exam!
