I am excited to be teaching at Twin Falls Middle School this year; I am joining a wonderful group of caring, dedicated educators who constantly strive to become better.
When my wife and I were looking for a place to raise our children 10 years ago, we started with the school district as our top priority, which led us to settle in the Snoqualmie Valley School District. Never did I imagine at that time that I would end up working as a teacher in the very same district where our three children go to school.
I previously worked in the HVAC/Refrigeration industry for nearly a decade prior to pursing my Masters of Education and teaching certificate. Prior to that, I worked as a sports journalist for 10 years. I hope to bring many of my "real-world" experiences into the classroom.
Outside the classroom, I enjoy going to sporting events (Go Hawks, Sounders, and Mariners), travelling, especially to Disneyland and the Oregon Coast, and spending time with my wife, three daughters, and our beagle, Lucy.
It is truly an honor to be entrusted with teaching your children and I hope to be as big of a positive influence on their lives as my teachers were to me. I look forward to developing long-lasting relationships with them throughout the year.
