TEACHING COURSES AT VALENCIA COLLEGE:
Professor of Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy. At Valencia College I teach mostly Astronomy courses at the Osceola and West Campus.
My main philosophy is encourage the student to achieve his or hers highest potential and respect others people ideas within the framework of
equal opportunity in a democratic society. In my courses I try to develop in the student many skills needed in the professional life. Probably the
most important is critical thinking and the scientific method.
During the past few years my favorites hobbies are; Digital photography, music and electronics. I also like to travel outside of the USA.
