Education:

Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Penn State University (Harrisburg)


The Biggest Advantage to Working at an Independent School:

The culture of learning... Fewer distractions than appear to be in public schools!  Teachers teach "real" stuff, not just what the state says they have to teach so the school gets a good grade on the PSSAs.

Why I Love Harrisburg Academy:

There's always a large variety of things to do that have both a direct and an indirect impact on the education of the students.

My Favorite Book:
The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.  He weaves an incredibly believable environment that has so many supporting details of lore and culture -- even complete languages.


 

In my interview with Greg Morgan, Head of School at the time (1999), he said that if I was the successful candidate for the open position of Director of Technology, I would be expected to teach at least one Computer Science class.  I said I was sorry but I did not have a teaching certificate and didn't think that was possible.  But he said it was not a problem in an independent school and if I was willing and able, I could teach.  How Cool! <Please see me for the rest of the story.>

Harrisburg's Only Independent School,
