It has always been important for Dennis to live a life of service. After college, he served as an Americorps volunteer in Carlsbad Caverns National Park and as an Americorps Vista volunteer at Sanislo Elementary School in Seattle. With his wife, Brianna, who also teaches at FSA, he served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Dominican Republic, where he worked in environmental education and taught English. He has also worked in engineering and the Atlanta nonprofit sector with such organizations as Lutheran Services of Georgia and Southface Energy Institute. As a science teacher, Dennis aims to make his lessons as relevant as possible to his students’ lives. He wishes to contribute to scientific knowledge by making students feel active in doing so. Ultimately, Dennis’s goal is to empower students to use science to understand the world and to make it a better place.
