He has taught in public schools, private schools, and professional schools and has worked with students from ages 5 – 99. His largest class was 300 students (I actually found out it was 300, not 30, in the hallway on the way to class. That was fun.)

In addition to being honored with regional, state, national and international recognitions, he has presented at conferences worldwide. In 2017, he was selected as a finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Currently, he serves on of the board of CSTA.
