It's a pleasure to live in Louisa County
and to teach at LCHS. I've lived here
since 1973. After 11 full years of
teaching, I retired from full-time at the
end of the 2007-08 school year, but
returned to teach one course per
semester (PVCC Astronomy in the Fall,
and PVCC Physics in the Spring).
sorry to say, because of a few
health issues, I will not be teaching
in the 2016-17 school year.
might still see me now and then doing a
few small services, and I may be back in
2017 if the health gets resolved. (I'll
miss the teaching, and good luck to all.)
Prior to coming to LCHS, I worked at
NASA Headquarters for several years,
taught astronomy at the University of
Virginia, owned and operated a cattle
farm, developed the Louisa Country
Club (now the Greens at Tanyard), and
developed the Panamint Woods and
Tanyard subdivisions in Louisa. I have
a Bachelor of Science degree from the
University of Notre Dame, and a Ph.D.
in Space Physics and Astronomy from
Rice University. Also, during the last few
years I've taken quite a few additional
graduate courses in Education,
Mathematics, and Technology, mostly
at the University of Virginia and at
James Madison University.
