    This is my second year as a Tech teacher. I taught 1st grade (Classic and CTA) over the past 9 years at Carlson, 2nd grade for 1 year, and I have taught special education for 10 years.

    My wife is an assistant principal in Phoenix. We have two daughters that love to play basketball. Rylie will be a sophomore and Payton is entering 7th grade.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I received my BA from The Ohio State University and my MA in special education from The University of Phoenix.

    My Educational Philosophy

    Every student brings something unique to the classroom. I want to foster, explore and develop those talents through discussion, guided activities and practice to help students grow into independent thinkers.
