I’ve always enjoyed taking things apart and learning what makes them work, fixing them when they are broken, and improving them when I can. I can honestly say that St. James Academy nurtures the gifts of the faculty and students alike. When I am home I spend my time with my wife and two daughters. Watching my children reminds me that they like to be involved and are rarely content to sit and have something explained to them. They want the experience for themselves and they want to figure it out for themselves. When I am presenting a lesson to students I try to keep that in mind, help when I am needed, and gauge my success on the students knowing more then I have taught them when they leave.
