Howdy! This will be my sixth year teaching at Shepton High School. I went to Plano East Senior HS and then Texas A&M University before coming back to Plano to teach.
My preferred contact method is email (address on the left under my picture).
Clubs I sponsor:
Robotics - I am the robotics coach at Shepton! I am always looking for interested students, with experience or just with enthusiam, to help grow our program and compete. Robotics club meeting times are pending. Once I know what students are interested I will find a time that works best.
Chess Club - I am an avid chess player and love teaching students to play, coaching them to improve their game, and being challenged by them!

Because I teach four different courses, there is no single tutorial time to meet every student's needs. Generally I do tutorials by appointment as students need them, and I'm generally very flexible. However, the following are dedicated times I will be available:
Wednesdays: 4:15 - 4:45pm
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!
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.
