• I have been teaching science in Hastings since Sept. 2000. My current subjects are AP Chemistry, Regents Chemistry, Disease and Society, and Health.

    I am available for extra help or questions before and after classes and by appointment. You can find me either in the Science Office or Room 305.

    "For a man to attain to an eminent degree in learning costs him time, watching, hunger, nakedness, dizziness in the head, weakness in the stomach, and other inconveniences." (Miguel de Cervantes) 
    "There's much in the world to make me sad, angry, disappointed, scared, confused ... always has been. For my well-being I must make the decision each day to at least try and focus on what makes me happy, calm, satisfied, brave, and enlightened. It's not that I don't see, it's that I don't want to go blind." (Sarah Bloom)

    “It is written that the priest Shungaku said, 'In just refusing to retreat from something one gains the strength of two men.' This is interesting. Something that is not done at that time and at that place will remain unfinished for a lifetime. At a time when it is difficult to complete matters with the strength of a single man, one will bring it to a conclusion with the strength of two. If one thinks about it later, he will be negligent all his life." (Yamamoto Tsunetomo, Hagakure – The Book of the Samurai)
  • I not only know what I'm talking about, but it doesn't matter.
