Jason is currently teaching Physical Science and Biomedical Science at Carroll High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana. After being in administration for a few years, Jason re-entered the classroom in order to be closer to his daughter, Adelynn.
Jason wanted to become an administrator when he had the chance to choose what device students would use in his classroom and was able to develop his own course, Advanced Topics in Modern Science.
As a consequence, Jason has a true passion for empowering both students and adults.
He is the host of the Principally Speaking Podcast and is working on a new podcast entitled #922 that tells the story of his grandfather who is a living Holocaust survivor.
