Welcome Message

This is my 18th year here at Coronado. I look forward to another great year!

I have a beautiful bride of 39 years, a daughter and a son. We were all born and raised in Indiana. My daughter 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 of teaching experience with Fort Wayne Community Schools in Indiana, where I taught Physical Education, High School Biology, 7th grade Science, and technology. I have coached all levels of kids from 9 year olds through middle school and also high school baseball and softball. 

This is my 18th year here at Coronado, where I teach Physical Education and I formerly served as the Athletic Director for 10 years.
