Favorite Thing About St Robert's - I appreciate the spirit and enthusiasm of the students for the betterment and growth of the school, and the generosity of so many alumni who return to the school in some capacity after graduation to help with its continued growth and mission of formation of the next generation. In short, I love the gratitude shown for what is given and the willingness to give in return.
Favorite Thing About Teaching: I love being able to communicate and share the wonder I experience at the complexity of God's creation and how its various systems harmoniously cooperate to move the whole. I suppose I just have a natural impulse to share the things I've discovered or learned and somehow find personal satisfaction and purpose in that.
