This is year twenty-one for me teaching science at Merrill. My goal is for students to like science a little bit more, and hopefully a lot more, than when they start the year. Sparking curiosity, igniting experimentation, and solving problems that seemed unsolvable is at the root of science.
In my free time, I enjoy visiting state parks and national parks across the country. Road trips are great for the soul. I also enjoy hunting down the best slice of pie while on the road, often taking me into rural Amish and Mennonite communities. I recommend Golden Delight bakery in Kalona, Iowa and Kountry Korner down in Bloomfield, Iowa.
