I'm delighted to be a part of Casteel High School and working in the prestigious CUSD. In addition to teaching I also coach Men's and Girls Soccer here at school. I am honored to be married and a proud father of five children.

My Education and Professional Background

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that students can become mini historians and not just hearers of history. Each teaching day aims to be purposeful, professional, and personable as students experience energy, enthusiasm, and empathy in the classroom. I seek to facilitate a collaborative approach with all students to foster participation. This adds connectivity and confidence and fulfills my altruistic commitment to the students. For students to become functioning members of society and to successfully navigate their way in life, I feel it important to reassure them that staying close to custom, history, and experience will see them through. If I can associate effort with success and historical accuracy with optimism, then my dual roles as a teacher and a mentor are on the right path.
