Hello! I look forward to having you as a student in my class. You may wish to know some background information about me. I was born in 1971 and have been happily married since 1992. My wife and I have two daughters and a son. I grew up in the "thumb" of Michigan and graduated in 1989. I obtained a Bachelors degree in 1994 from Bethel College (IN). Later I earned a Master of Science in Social Studies Education from Indiana University (Go Hoosiers!).
I was honored to be named the Higley High TEACHER OF THE YEAR in 2013. I have taught just about everything there is to teach in Social Studies including Psychology, Sociology, U.S. and World History as well as Government and Economics along with AP versions of several of those courses. I taught in Michigan prior to relocating to Arizona and I started working for HUSD in 2005. I earned National Board Certification for secondary Social Science in 2007 and renewed for 10 years in 2017
I enjoy coaching tennis as well as travelling and reading in my spare time.
