I'm a science teacher at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent, Ohio, where I've taught since 2005, and I previously taught at Hamilton High School for seven years. I've been married to my wife since 2003, and we have two great kids, Anna & Dylan.
Students of Kent Roosevelt DECA, with the help of the Athletic Department have created a survey looking for students, parents and community members opinions on the attendance of Roosevelt high school athletic events.

The Hour of Code is a worldwide one-hour introduction to computer programming, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can do it! Popular games such as Minecraft and Angry Birds are all written with code.
Kent Girl Coders and HacKSU will be hosting an “Hour of Code” event for grades 3 and up on Saturday, December 12th from 11am-12pm in the Roosevelt High School Media Center. We want to get Kent students interested in coding by having them create their own computer game in a supportive environment.
Space is limited to 100 participants, and parents are asked to stay with elementary age children. If you’re interested in signing up your child, please use the form at: http://www.kentschools.net/code/

Bridget Franek, who represented the United States at the 2012 Olympics, spoke to an assembly of students at Theodore Roosevelt High School Thursday. Bridget’s father, Tom Franek, is a teacher in Forestry and Landscape Horticulture, a Six District Educational Compact College Tech Prep Initiative headquartered at Roosevelt.
Bridget talked about her experiences at Crestwood High School, Penn State University and as a member of the Oregon Track Club, as well as her journey as an Olympic competitor in the steeplechase event. In her remarks, she encouraged students to set goals and take advantages of their opportunities—and to have fun.
On Wednesday, September 29th, 2010, over three-hundred students from our Advanced Chemistry, Environmental Science, and CP Physical Science classes got out of the classroom and went down to Breakneck Creek in Kent to perform a variety of scientific measurements. As the year goes on, we hope to collect all of this data into a stream study about Breakneck Creek that we can pass on to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
