My name is Adam Cartwright, and yes, I was named after a character on a TV show. I spent most of my life in Austin, Texas where I was an all district power forward before getting my bachelor's in neurobiology from the University of Texas at Austin. I worked as a paramedic in college and spent a few years at the University Health Sciences Center Medical School learning that I did not want to become a doctor. I am the JV basketball coach along with teaching Junior High and High School science here at Weldon Valley, which is a great combination of my passion for science and basketball. I recently moved to Colorado with my adorable husky and we absolutely love it here. I am looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm with the students, and hopefully, we can have some fun while learning.
