Charles has been working with the Academy of Math & Science since December 2017. Prior to working with the Academy he spent ten years with Normandale Community College's TRIO Upward Bound program and a few years teaching middle school math and science. What he loved from his previous experience was working closely with students over many years, watching them grow and succeed in their next stages in life. The things he loved about his previous jobs are what really drew him to the Academy of Math & Science, along with his passion for math and science. Outside of work, Charles enjoys spending time with his wife and two boys playing sports, video games and going on bike rides.
