Hello and welcome!
The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.

My Education and Professional Background
I attended Drury University in Springifeld, Missouri where I recieved a Bacelors of Science in Biology. I then spent a semester filling in as a long term sub at Harrisburg High school teaching Biology, Environmental Science, and Forensic Science. I then moved Rio Rico, Arizona and taught Biology for a year at Rio Rico High School. My wife and I then decided we watned to move closer to the city and moved to Ahwatukee where I then commuted to Peoria to teach Environmental Science for a year. I then began my carrer at ACP in 2022 and have loved it here ever since!
My Educational Philosophy
Having grown up running around the woods of central Missouri hunting, fishing, farming, and just exploring my passion for biology runs very deep into my roots. My goal is to teach my students how to be successful in anything that they do. I plan to teach respect, organization, and accountability to the students in my classes. I believe that my goal as their teacher is not only to teach them the subject of Biology but to also teach them how to be a successful person throughout their career at ACP and then into their life after high school.
