I am new to the Alvin Independent School District and will be teaching Principles of Health and Medical Terminology. I trained in several institutions, having received my B.S. at the University of Houston/Lamar University, my M.D. at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in Richmond,Virginia and my postdoctoral training in education at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. While being an educator and H.O.S.A advisor for the Atlanta Public Schools system, I was awarded for our H.O.S.A programs growth and development. I look forward to the challenge of nurturing the .students within this community in terms of their interest in healthcare. I am a native Texan and reside in Friendswood with my wife and three children.
