I am passionate about every child having an opportunity to learn. I believe every student needs to learn and my job is to create engaging and relevant learning experiences every day. Students need to be active participants in their own learning and my job is to teach them the skills to do so. My goal is to meet my students where they are and be their guide for academic and behavioral success.
In my personal life, I am happily married to an amazing individual and together we provide a home for a tabby cat named Winston, and a Chesapeake Bay retriever named Reacher. I love to hunt and fish, and I have taken several trips to Alaska to go halibut and salmon fishing. For relaxation, I lift weights competitively, shoot competitive trap and skeet,camp, read, and cook. This year I am starting a new adventure - wood turning!
