Bio

Welcome .....  Teaching Science is such a joy.  I have over seventy-five students and we have a great time in our hands-on Science class.  We use a program called AMSTI.  In this program, students conduct in-class investigations to solve problems and investigate the various components of science.  6th graders complete two 18 week units including Earth in Space and Catastrophic Events.  The fifth graders complete one 18 week unit and 2 nine week units, including  Ecosystems and Environmental Engineering, Matter and Interactions and Astronomy and Aerospace Engineering.  With AMSTI, we have "put-aside" the typical "science books" and have immersed ourself into a hands-on approach to learning.  I love the kids and I love what I do.  We have fun, while learning in the process.

I am married to Shannon Oliver, member of the Franklin County Board of Education, and we have one daughter Bailey who is an ninth grader.  We reside in the Belgreen community and are actively involved in the school.
