Welcome Message

This is my 17th year here at Coronado. I look forward to another great year!

I have a beautiful bride of 38 years, a daughter and a son. We were all born and raised in Indiana. My daughter is married has blessed us with two grandkids. They continue to live in Indiana. My son and his wife also live in Indiana.
I enjoy visiting my family back in Indiana, hunting, camping, fishing and golf. I am a huge fan of the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana basketball.

Defining Moments in Education

As with many teachers I was influenced by teachers that I had growing up. They are the reason that I teach now.

Core Educational Belief

I am a true believer that there is a direct correlation between physical fitness and academic achievement. One is no more important than the other.

Prior Experience

I graduated from Ball State University in Muncie Indiana and I have taken most of my continuing/post graduate classes from Indiana University. I have 12 years teaching experience with Fort Wayne Community Schools in Indiana where I taught Physical Education, High School Biology, 7th grade Science, and technology.

This is my 17th year here at Coronado where I teach Physical Education and I formerly served as the Athletic Director for 10 years.

I look forward to another great year!
