    I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics Education and have been employed by the Meyersdale Area School District 1997-present as a Physics Instructor.
         My philosophy of education is that anything a student truly believes that he/she can achieve, can be accomplished through hard work and perseverance, with the support of family, friends and the educational community.  Paralleling my own philosophy I also believe, whole heartedly, in the quotes from Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison that I also have posted in my room, respectively: "Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character." and "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.".
         I offer many different times for students to come for extra help as my schedule will permit. If you or your child is in need of extra help please feel free to contact me, through e-mail, in person or by phone.  PHONE: 634-8311, you may have to leave a message, but I will most definitely get back to you.
        Additional class specifics like, class assignments, class notes, text book and may other links that may be useful may be obtained through "logging in".  "Log in" information will be given to the students on the first day of school of every year.
