Mike has been teaching for 20 years, spending most of his time in the classroom teaching elementary and middle school science and math. He spent 10 years of his career in two Quaker Middle Schools, most recently Sidwell Friends School. Feeling the call to serve in our city’s public schools, Mike went back to school eight years ago for a Master’s in Elementary Education with a focus in urban schools. Since then, Mike has been with DCPS, teaching Kindergarten to Fifth grade science and Sixth grade math at Brent Elementary. In addition to his teaching duties, Mike has run after school clubs like the Rube Goldberg Society and Urban Birders, as well as Brent’s annual Math and Science nights. He also runs the very popular New Year’s Bird Count for Kids, an annual bird census that draws hundreds of community members for a morning of winter bird-watching. Mike enjoys spending time at home with his wife Alisa and his three year old son Milo.
