Hello Wilson Wranglers. I am entering my 12th year as a teacher at Wilson and had a 3 year stint as the Dean of Students and 21st Century Grant Coordinator at Marana Middle School. Thats 15 years of middle school experience. Am I crazy for loving it? Over the years I have taught the core subjects of, social studies, language arts, and math. And electives including teen court, living skills, leadership, and career explorations. I am proud to be a Wrangler and consider Wilson my home away from home.

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 (11) and daughter (9) are students here at Wilson

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

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

I believe:

* Effort + A 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 towards all
