I am in my 5th year of teaching science at in high needs, urban high schools in Dayton, Ohio. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology and was a process/quality engineer for 10 years. I am starting a new chapter teaching Physics abroad. That was awhile back! I have owned a makerspace in China for the last two years and offer professional development services to schools beginning or strengthening their STEAM programs.
