I currently teach astronomy at Tompkins Cortland Community College. While interested in all things astronomy, the fields of exoplanets and modern physics are of particular interest. I enjoy taking a multidisciplinary approach to education as a means to teach science to non-science students. Prior to my foray in the world of space, I studied economics. The purpose of this blog is to explore educational methods to promote better learning – but that won’t stop me from including some personal musings from time to time.
