Living Waters Science
Steve has been married to Anna his wife, for 30 years. Their romance is the fruit of finding themselves working together as co-teachers of a Japanese home stay program for a whole summer. They have home schooled their five children, 4 of whom have graduated. When Anna is able to join Steve and David for the camps in Portland, which she has for the last 3 years, the camps run a lot smoother! Anna keeps both David and Steve in line, making sure they don’t get too crazy. Now that she has finished homeschooling she works as a program specialist with disadvantaged college students at our local community college.
Steve has taught math and science in Christian and public schools for 26 years, 5 of which were at Living Waters Christian School, a parent co-op school he and Anna began in So. California. He holds credentials in both Science and Math in Oregon. In addition he has taught science and math courses for home school students for the last 10 years. He is currently an adjunct professor at Rogue Community College where he enjoys teaching an applied algebra course in which he has the freedom to incorporate STEM learning. A big kid at heart, he likes blowing things up and getting a little crazy to help others get excited about science. One of his hobbies is taking his family and others on outdoor adventures, including rafting, hiking, backpacking and camping trips.

He has really been blessed to bring exciting science experiences to students working alongside his wife and several of his young adult children. His current assistant for the past 5 years is his son, David (see below).
David is currently a dual credit student at Rogue Community College in Medford. He enjoys working with science students, and they LOVE him and his sense of humor. He’s my secret source of creative ideas, and probably could run the camp by himself. He believes his role is in making sure the students are enjoying themselves, and he is very successful at that. Besides helping with science camps and classes, David is really enjoying being a part of Teen Musical Theater of Southern Oregon. He is gifted both in acting and singing, and is auditioning soon for his 3rd play with them.
