Introduction
Gary is an award-winning educator and teacher leader for his classroom innovations in science teaching and instructional technology. He is the 2013-14 Michigan Teacher of the Year and a student in the Galileo Teacher Leadership Academy

Through his innovative efforts in the classroom, Gary has successfully brought science to life for many high school students and inspired the classrooms of countless others. He runs a nearly paperless ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) science classroom, utilizes project-based learning methods, and incorporates standards-based grading with his students.
