Why does Biology matter?

 Biology explains so much of our world. Many people have misconceptions of Biology. My favorite thing about teaching Biology is to help students break through these misconceptions into deeper learning.

What do you do when you’re not working at SPP?

Climb, bike, camp, and study bio-physics.

How did you spend your summer?

I ran a STEM summer institute at Augsburg College where experienced high school teachers work with teachers in training. They do college level research while adapting the research to the high school classroom.

Where is the best place you’ve ever lived or visited and why?

Minnesota. We have everything to satisfy an outdoorsman.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done?

During college, I ran the campus radio station. (That’s cool right?)

What’s something you’re planning to do this school year?

Have a successful robotics season.

What do you find fascinating?

The length of this questionnaire. 🙂

If you weren’t teaching, what job would you want?

Highway Helper or Bicycle Repair
