Office Hour Coach – David Steinfeld

Ever since Mr. Steinfeld was on his high school debate team (which went to the State Championships), he has been trying to help others excel in making speeches.

Mr. Steinfeld has been a Thermal engineer for over 30 years, working as an Aerospace Engineer at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. His job requires effective public speaking skills to get his point across and has made hundreds of technical presentations to technical and non-technical audiences.  Throughout his career, he has seen the full gamut of presentations, from very good to extremely poor, and would like to share his abilities and observations toward helping others with their public speaking skills.  Public speaking is not a skill people are necessarily born with, but comes with practice.

Mr. Steinfeld has worked with Youth for over 20 years, by being a baseball coach, hockey coach, Cubmaster, and Scoutmaster.  Mr. Steinfeld is currently in his 8th year as Scoutmaster of Troop 3 in Rockville Maryland, enabling youth the ability to become Leaders In their community.

Mr. Steinfeld attended college at Georgia Tech, and has a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Aerospace Engineering.  Mr. Steinfeld has been awarded the NASA Distinguished Service Medal for his outstanding service to both NASA and the US Government.
