  • Teaching Background

    I have been teaching at KIHS since 2004. I hold a teaching certificate in Computer Science (CS), Business Education, and Tech Ed. I teach all of the CS courses: CS Discoveries and the three CS Pathway courses:
    • Computer Science I
    • AP Computer Science Principles
    • AP Computer Science A



    I completed my undergraduate studies at James Madison University in Finance and Business Law.  I attended the University of Alaska-Fairbanks for graduate school where I earned a MS in CS. My wife, Corinne, and I have two children, Catrina and Alec. I'm proud to say my kids are products of the QACPS school system. My daughter studied Aerospace Engineering at Purdue and is now working for LockHeed Martin as an aeronautical engineer in their BlackHawk program. My son is currently majoring in CS at Ga Tech.


    Computer Science Pathway

    The idea that CS can improve the quality of my students’ lives long after they’ve sat in my classroom is my motivation. In an increasingly computer-centric world, the skills students acquire along the pathway are designed to prepare them for the next level. The curriculum work develops their academic, technical, and soft skills. The breadth and depth of skills acquired prepare our students to pursue higher education or, in some cases, enter the workforce.
