Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up outside of Denver, Colorado, and resided there until 1987. At that time I became involved in the commerical seafood industry managing a wholesale-retail processing plant and distributorship. After several years I opted to attend college and, after two years in Florida colleges, I wound up in Auburn for their world class warm water Aquaculture Production and Fisheries Management program. I completed 2 degrees (BSc, MSc), was on staff at the Auburn University Marine Extension and Research Center for nearly two years, and returned to Auburn for yet another graduate degree.
I am entering my 15th year with Lee County Schools and 20th year in the field of education.
I am teaching Honors Biology (2 courses), General Biology (2 courses), Advanced Placement Biology and Anatomy this year.
I have been married to Susan Pavek for over 25 years and have two children - Jessica, 32, an Engineer and Jake, 21, a college student.
