I am a high school Chemistry Teacher from Wichita, Kansas embarking on a Distinguished Awards in Teaching (DAT) program sponsored by the US/UK Fulbright Commission and the Institute of International Education (IIE).

I have been placed with Durham University in the northeast of England for a semester, January – June 2017. My inquiry project aims to identify best teaching practices in the UK with regard to refugee and English Language Learner students.

Along with my wife and two sons, I am excited to explore this beautiful part of the world.
