II. Defining Moment in Education: First as a student, then later as a teacher, I came to realize that learning is not a finite event, but an ongoing, lifelong process of fully becoming who a person is.
III. Core Educational Beliefs: "Excellence is not an act, but a habit." (Socrates) "No significant learning occurs without significant relationship." (Dr. James Comer)
IV. Prior Experience: I was born in California, raised in Alaska, and I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Speech-Communication-Theatre at Northern Arizona University. Several years later, I earned a Secondary Teaching Certificate with endorsements in English and Drama. My first teaching experience was as a substitute for two years in Los Angeles County Special Education and Juvenile Court Facilities. Next, I taught English and Drama for four years at Hollenbeck Junior High School in East Los Angeles for Los Angeles Unified School District. My wife (CDO Class of 1978) and I and our two sons moved to Washington State, where we had our third son (CDO Class of 2011), and I taught high school and middle school Language Arts for 16 years north of Seattle. This is my twelfth year teaching English at CDO High School.
