After working in the business world as a loan officer and being a stay at home dad, I resumed my teaching career as a 7th & 8th grade ELA teacher in Anthem for five years. Upon moving to Mesa, I sought a teaching position in the Higley School District and had the pleasure of being hired at Coronado Elementary. I am excited to begin my sixth year at Coronado Elementary.

Our older daughter, Lexi, teaches science in Tempe while our son Josh, a recent Sun Devil graduate, works for an accounting firm in Phoenix. Our younger daughter, Hope, is in her sophmore year at the ASU downtown campus. She is currently attending Barrett Honors College and nursing school. We have two dogs - Aspen a white husky and Puggles the pug.Likes: I love watching college football and despite being born in Virginia and living in Arizona, I am a HUGE Oklahoma Sooner fan. My perfect vacation would be going to Cabo or to the Turks and Caicos and spending my time fishing, eating seafood, and swimming in the ocean.I look forward to working with your child this year and hopefully, helping him or her grow both academically and socially.
