I am so excited to start out this year at a new school. I have taught the last 18 years in elementary. Finally, I have passed the 6th grade. I am a father of 5 with bookend boys. My oldest graduated from Perry. I have two more there, and two at CTA - Independence. Math is definitely my favorite subject. I enjoy that there is only one answer but a myriad of different ways to get there. I hope to celebrate successes, big and small, this year. Let's create the best year ever!

My Education and Professional Background

I have taught grades 1, 4, 5, and 6 over my career. I have even been an administrator for a time. I did my undergraduate work at Ottawa University and received my Master's degree from NAU. I have taught in multiple districts and even a few charter schools. I am happy to call CUSD my home.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe learning is integral to life. I hope to create a classroom where students feel empowered to share and ask questions. I hope to also build in them a strength found by persevering through tough situations. Education is the key to life improvement. Education is the key to strengthening our community and world.
