2019-2020 Teaching Assignments
I currently teach students Physics and Physics-Differentiated (honors) at Lincoln North Star High School. Before that I taught chemistry and physics at Lincoln Southeast High School and was a Technology Liaison. I have taught science since 1988. I serve on the Technology Committee. I am currently the North Star Science Department Chair.
In addition to teaching science I have sponsored clubs, coached science competitions, worked with gifted and special needs students, served on many district and building committees, presented at conferences, served as an US-DOE National Report Card Assessment Reviewer (NAEP), was chosen for Leadership In Nebraska KICKS Science, and led a variety of staff in-service activities and workshops. For many years I have taught technology courses for LPS Staff Development and have provided computer support and training.
Related education activities have included work as Team Leader for UNL's School of Biological Sciences Advising Center (Pre-Med & Bio.), curriculum researcher and writer, I was one of the Founding Board Directors of the Lincoln Children's Museum, former Chair of the Lincoln Children's Museum Math, Science and Technology committee, and one of L.C.M.'s first Site Directors, among other activities.
Education is a second career for me. Prior to education I owned and operated Doughty Construction Company.
