I was born in Wellsville, Utah in Cache Valley. I am 28 years old I got married a little over a three years ago to my wife and best friend Dani who you can see to the right on our cruise to Alaska. My first name is Mike!
Let me tell you about my family. I am the second youngest of six kids. I have an older brother who is a dentist in Oregon and a sister who is a nurse in Arizona. My dad is a Principal of a middle school in Cache Valley.
I love to travel. Some of my favorite places I have traveled to are Jamaica, Bahamas, Mexico, Alaska, Las Vegas, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Scotland, England, and Oregon.
I spent two years in Scotland on a mission for the LDS Church. I still love to speak with a Scottish accent and you will constantly find me using Scottish words in class.
A year ago I graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelors Degree in Biological Science. I met my wife at Utah State University where she has recently graduated with a degree in Technical Writing
I am actually still attending Utah State University. I am currently getting a Masters Degree in Instructional Technology. I will graduate in Spring 2011.
I love movies! Some of my favorite movies include Lord of the Rings, Saving Private Ryan, The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Indiana Jones, and Serenity.
I like video games! I own an Xbox 360 which I love to play in my spare time Some of my favorite recent video games are Halo 3, Fallout 3, Call of Duty games, Uncharted, etc. Halo Reach comes out in a couple of weeks. YES!
I like sports. My two favorite teams are the Denver Broncos and the Phoenix Suns. The Utah Jazz are probably my second favorite basketball team.
Sports I like include basketball, baseball, football, golf, and tennis.
My favorite bands are probably Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, and Coldplay. I do like all sorts of music though and I’ll listen to about anything. This year you will hear plenty of music during class.
In addition to traveling me and my wife like to go camping and hiking. We are pictured hiking around a waterfall in Jamaica to the right. We also like going to comedy clubs, hanging out with family, and just laughing.
Science is Awesome. I like it because it explains all of the different aspects of the world we live in. My dad was a science teacher and so was his dad. I remember from a young age watching my dad perform experiments and I always thought it was cool.
Throughout the year if you have any questions or concerns, please just ask me or email me. I feel like I am really easy to work with and understanding but I need to know there is a problem before I can address it.
Do you have any last second burning questions about your new science teacher? I was once asked what my favorite cheese was after this discussion so no question is stupid. My favorite cheese is mozzarella!
This game is played by taking a note card where I want you to answer the following questions. 1. What is your full name? 2. When I am older I want to…….. 3. What is your favorite movie? 4. What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time? 5. If you could learn anything in science what would it be? 6. If you could have lunch with anybody dead or alive who would it be and why?
Turn over your card and on the back write three statements about yourself. Two of these statements need to be true while one is a lie. Please try to make all three statements believable so as to hide your lie. Also make sure and include only statements that you would not mind sharing with the entire class. Please write legibly on the card so that your answers can be clearly read.
1. Mountain Dew paid for me to go to and graduate from college. 2. I was once involved with a drug bust in Cache Valley. 3. On Halloween I always dress up as a Jedi Knight.
