About Me:

This 2017-2018 school year will be my third year at Lexington and my sixth year teaching overall. I teach geometry and pre-calculus, and serve as the Lexington Chess Club adviser. I am also the JV Boys' Basketball coach. I live with my wife, Sarah, and we have two daughters, Claire (4 years old) and Alaina (2 years old). 

Students should expect daily homework and a quiz (or Test) every week. Homework is mostly graded by effort, and it is 35% of your grade. Tests and quizzes are 65% of your grade. If you want to do well in my math class, please invest time and be engaged with your work. A prepared student is a confident student.
