Writer, Wordsmith, and Teacher. Physics, Astronomy, Space my interests. Wooded area out the back door. This blog is about these and more. I also blog with Melanie in IA at Our View From Iowa.
My years as a teacher were in Illinois first. Taught the gamut from gifted teens to prison inmates. Helped run summer teacher institutes at Fermilab. Been inside the Tevatron accelerator tunnel and some detectors. Stood in a 3 Tesla magnetic field.
Here is a post that reveals a few signposts along my life journey.
Taught in Iowa most recently at one of the top high schools in the nation. Had a national champion engineering team.
Concerned about climate change, the poor funding of R&D, hunger and poverty, campaign finance reform, restrictions on voting rights, the war on women.
I like to see thoughtful comments from readers. It is greatly appreciated when a reader takes the time to consider what the post said, follow some links, and offer reactions and their own insight. I enjoy discussion. That’s a trait from my teaching days.
Eye candy and pretty pictures might show up in some posts. Mostly, I leave those things to others. I am interested in telling a story about something interesting in the world.
