Howdy! This will be my fifth year at Shepton High School. I went to Plano East Senior HS and then Texas A&M University before coming back to Plano to teach.

 

Especially during this time with remote learning, my preferred method of contact is email (to the left under my picture).

 

Here are the clubs I sponsor:

Clubs: 

Robotics - I am the robotics coach at Shepton! We started the club in 2017 so I (and the students) am very excited to see how well we can do and see our robotics program grow! Robotics club meetings have generally been held during lunch on Thursdays, but given the remote learning situation our meeting schedule is still pending...

Chess Club - I am an avid chess player and love teaching students to play and being challenged by them! Last year we met during lunch on Mondays, but the new schedule is also pending...

    Lunch

    4th Period - 12:48 - 1:36 - AP CS Principles

    5th Period - 1:41  - 2:29 -  Intro to Engineering Design

    6th Period - 2:34  - 3:22 -  Engineering Science

    7th Period - 3:27  - 4:15 -  AP CS Principles    

     

  • Tutorials will stage 1 of virtual learning will be intially set to the following:

    Tuesdays: 8:15 - 8:45 am

    Wednesdays: 4:15 - 4:45 pm

     

    The tutorial schedule may change as the year develops and I find times that best meet student needs. I teach a lot of different classes and no single time will meet every students' needs, so I often schedule tutorials by request when classes need them.

  • Course Descriptions

     

    A little bit about the 4 different classes I teach:

    Intro to Engineering Design - An introduction to the foundations all engineers must know. We learn about the engineering design process, technical drawings, engineering standards in documentation and dimensioning, statistical analysis, and 3D modeling of various objects in Autodesk Inventor 

    Engineering Science - Essentially a survey of different engineering fields, each unit is totally new information related to one or several fields of engineering. Simple/compound machines, circuits, thermodynamics, statics, robotics/programming, and projectile motion just to name a few!

    AP Computer Science Principles - this is designed to be an introductory course to computer science, so no prior knowledge is necessary. At the beginning of the course we learn the basics of how information is stored in computers, how they communicate online (Internet Protocols), and basic encryption. Then the course is all about how to create programs and apps with code (javascript).  

    Computer Science I - Computer Science I is an introduction to the automated processing of information, including computer programming. No prior knowledge of computer science is needed. The learning in this course equips students to read and write small programs using Java programming language in response to a given problem or scenario.
