     About Me  I am a native Texan, born in Abilene. I have lived in Puerto Rico, Arkansas, Texas, Arizona and Illinois.  I have lived with my family in Georgetown for twenty years.  My wife, Rhonda Smith is the High School Counselor at Richarte High School and is also a Licensed Professional Counselor.  My past experience includes eighteen years in international high-tech, corporate human resources as a Manager, Director and Vice-President.  My travels include sixteen foreign countries where I have worked.   I am passionate about kids and science! In 2001, my wife and I built a travel-adventure camp for boys.  Each spring and summer break I take young men on western travel exploration adventures and teach field science, leadership skills and history of the American westward expansion.  Our camp is called Fort Smith Mountain Men, http://www.SGOAdventurescom and is modeled after a camp a man took me on when I was 12-13.   My hobbies include fly fishing, camping, reading and exercising.  I love everything outdoors!   My wife and I have four grown children, four grand-children and one roommate: Jonah, "the cat."   

    I am excited to be your child's teacher this year for science.  We will be learning many new things.  I ask that you challenge your child to study every single day.  I have high expectations for proper student behavior and performance because I know that all kids are capable of great things.  With your help, we can make this science year a wonderfully exciting and productive experience for your child!
