Hello Wilson Wranglers. For the last 3 years I was a Dean of Students and 21st Century Grant Coordinator at Marana Middle School. Before that I spent my entire teaching career, including student teaching, here at Wilson K-8. My first year I was a 6th grade Language Arts teacher, then I was a 7th grade math and social studies teacher for two years. After that I taught 8th grade social studies and Teen Court for two years and my next five years were spent as an 8th grade social studies and WEB Leadership teacher. I am thrilled to be back at Wilson and be a part of the Amphi family again.

A few facts about myself:

* My wife is also a teacher here in the Amphi district and we have been married for 15 years

* My son (10) and daughter (8) are students in Amphi

* I have travelled to 27 countries on 3 continents and 45 of the 50 states

* In my younger years I loved outdoor adventure sports and hang-gliding in the Swiss Alps was an awe-inspiring experience

I believe:

* Effort + Positive Attitude = Success

* Its all about the skills! I use subject area content to teach skills like collaboration, communication, problem solving, and critical thinking

* Differentiation of lessons and providing choices are key to student engagement and achievement

* In kindness and compassion to all
