Fun Fact(s)

I was homeschooled in High School so, officially, I'm not a High School graduate.

Background

I'm a retired General Practitioner who began teaching part-time when my two children were school age.  
After I retired from medical practice 15 years ago, I focused my efforts on teaching the high school level STEM courses full time.  
When my students were unable to handle the math required by the science classes, I began teaching the upper level math courses, as well. 
Ever since I was 12 years of age, organic vegetable gardening has been a hobby of mine.
