About Me

I am a physics teacher at Marina High School in Huntington Beach, CA.  I started teaching at Marina after eight years at El Rancho HS in Pico Rivera.  In those years I have taught Earth Science, Physics, Honors Physics, and AP Physics C.  My current teaching assignment is General Physics and AP Physics B.

I have a keen interest in changing the way I teach, and the way kids learn.  I am very, very new to most of the techniques I am using (flipped class, mastery learning, use of an LMS) and hope by working through the kinks with colleagues, and others on the world wide web, I will become the most awesomest teacher ever!

I got into teaching because I loved helping kids understand difficult subjects.  As a college student I began tutoring math, and realized that grad school (and a Ph.D.?) weren’t for me.  I wanted to keep on helping kids understand.  After eight years of teaching I feel the need to get back to the “understanding” part, and move past the focus on  test performance that has dominated my focus up to now.
