Teaching Experience: Much of my teaching experience was gained during my twenty years of service in the US Navy, teaching traditional physics and nuclear physics at the Naval Nuclear Power School, and math and meteorology courses at the US Naval Academy and Naval Postgraduate School.  I also taught basic meteorology and oceanography courses online for a college in Maryland for over seven years and currently also teach a course in general physical science for another online university. 

Related Experience: I am a retired US Navy METOC (METeorology and OCeanography) Officer - my job was to provide mission-specific weather and ocean forecasts for aviation, maritime, and special operations, which requires a detailed understanding of the air and ocean environment.
