The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con eso en mente, nuestro integro y dedicado grupo de trabajo ha preparado un plan de reapertura de las escuelas que incluye un regreso a la enseñanza en persona de tiempo completo para los estudiantes que están en los grados del PK al 5, en el 6, y en el 9, y un horario alternativo con una combinación de aprendizaje en persona y un aprendizaje sincronizado en vivo en tiempo real en línea a través del Internet para estudiantes en los grados 7 al 8 y del 10 al 12.
A drive-through Community Resource Center will be open from 12:00 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Wednesdays throughout the months of June and July. Bilingual staff is available at the Learning Services Center, 401 S. Pratt Parkway in Longmont. El Centro de Recursos Comunitario de autoservicio estará abierto los miercoles de 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. durante los meses de junio y julio. Personal bilingüe estará disponible en el Centro de Servicios de Aprendizaje, 401 S. Pratt Parkway en Longmont.

NPIB/Honors Chem/Phys, IB Physics SL, IB Physics HL
I started teaching math in 2009 at a small charter middle school while I was trying to figure out where I wanted to teach. Fortunately for Niwot, I decided that I could make more of an impact at the high school level. So I moved on to Lyons High School for one year where I taught both math and physics. I immediately jumped to Niwot as soon as an opening happened in 2011-2012 where I have been very happy teaching ever since. However, I have been involved at NHS since my oldest daughter began her freshman year in 2003.
Education: (degree, college, year)
MS in Materials Engineering, MIT 1985
BS in Materials Engineering, MIT 1984
Prior to teaching I was a Materials Engineer for 24 years. I started out at a huge company (The Dow Chemical Company) of 50,000+ employees and finished up by founding a very tiny company (MultiPhase Composites, LLC) which at its peak had 3 employees. Most of my projects involved developing advanced ceramic and composite materials for severe service applications. For example, one product was an electrical insulation system for superconducting magnets that go into particle accelerators. Maybe one day some of the insulation will make it into a LHC magnet at CERN.
My wife currently is a CPA specializing in taxes, but prior to us getting married, she was a geophysicist. I also have 2 daughters. They each completed the IB program at NHS and went off to become engineers themselves. I guess they didn’t fall too far from the tree. However, my youngest gave up her engineering temporarily and is serving in the Peace Corps in the mountains of Peru.
