Warwick Remote Learning
On Thursday, April 2nd, Warwick will begin remote learning due to the continuing COVID-19 related school closures. The hope, for my classes, is to convey the essential remaining content that students would otherwise have covered in school. The slides below cover expectations for remote learning. Please let me know if you have any questions.

2019-2020 will see me begin my 11th year teaching biology and chemistry at Warwick High School. Previously I spent 3 years teaching biology at Philadelphia's Martin Luther King High School.
I'm foolish enough to think that I bridge the "old school" and the "new school". My "old school" expectations are simple: I believe in hard work, personal responsibility, and doing your best. My parents and grandparents expected these things out of me. I expect them out of my students. And "new school": Students have innate talents and skills that they should be encouraged to take advantage of. There is just as much to be gained through collaboration and creative work as through a traditional teacher-driven lesson. Students can expect my classroom to be a combinations of all of these things.
I teach science because it is beautiful. The universe is an amazing place. On all levels, in both living and non-living things and from the microscopic to the gigantic, the universe is full of remarkable and complex wonder. Science allows us to open a window onto how this amazing universe works. Personally, I think that's really cool! It is this beauty and this wonder that I hope to communicate to my students.
I look forward to working with you this year. Here's to a great year!
