During his 19 years as a high school English teacher, John developed an inquiry-based-learning environment using constructivist teaching methods and a skills-based curriculum to teach students who were traditionally underserved. Also, an early adopter of 1:1 wireless technology, John's particular area of expertise is student motivation.

For the past five years he has taught, coached and advised both pre-service as well as in-service schoolteachers as faculty at The College of Education here at UML. He is a DifferenceMaker Fellow and the Coordinator for the Undergraduate Minor in Education.
