Professional Interests

My research interests concern the biblical integration of curriculum as well as math and science education, particularly from a Christian perspective. I am interested in exploring the use of technology in relation to instructional strategies.

 

Personal Interests

My wife and I have eight children ranging in age from 34 years to nine years old. Our seventh child has Down Syndrome. Having a child with special needs has been both a blessing and a challenge. I'm interested, along with my wife, in learning more about educating children with special needs.

 

In my free time, in addition to researching issues related to education, I write music and play guitar.

 

Covenant Activities

I have served on the Curriculum Committee for three years. The last two years I have served as the committee chair. I was the first sponsor of the Hip Hop Club at Covenant, started by my daughter in 2004. In the 2008-09 school year I will be co-sponsoring the Education Club.
