Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I'm privileged to be able to teach Elementary Physical Education this year at Patterson and Hancock Elementary Schools. I also Coach High School Football at Hamilton High School. My wife and I live in the Chandler Community and our two daughters attend Jacobson Elementary School. Chandler is a great place to live and raise a family. If your child is in my PE Class, and you have a question or concern, the best way to reach me is through e-mail.
My Education and Professional Background
Master's Degree/Educational Leadership/Northern Arizona University, Bachelor's Degree/Physical Education/University of South Florida, United States Air Force/Military Police/Security Forces/Operation Desert Storm Veteran, Teaching and Coaching Experience consists of over 14 years teaching and coaching students K-12 (Alternative, Special Needs, Elementary, Secondary, Head Boys Varsity Soccer Coach, Assistant Varsity Football Coach, Head Junior Varsity Football Coach, Special Olympics Coach).
My Educational Philosophy
As a Physical Education Teacher in Chandler Unified School District, my goal is to use multiple sports and activities as a tool to make a positive impact on students now and in the future. If I can teach a primary student the concept of spacial awareness, fundamental throwing, catching, and kicking skills, he or she will be prepared to participate in any youth sports organizations throughout the community. My goal is to also teach and demonstrate fair play. Secondary students will learn how to give maximum effort and demonstrate good sportsmanship with teammates and opponents regardless if they win or lose. If students are active, research says that his/her performance will improve in the classroom.
