Hello! This is my 16th year teaching high school English - I have taught all grade levels throughout my career, and am excited about my sections of English III, Honors English III, and English IV:B, Sports Lit. & Satire this year!
Coaching has been part of my career as an educator - I was a head high school boy's basketball coach for 5 years in Washington State, and was an assistant coach for the Carroll College men's basketball program for 5 years as well.
My family and I moved to Helena from Washington in 2007 and have fallen in love with the people and places out here. My wife and I feel that there is no better place to raise a family than Helena - our little guy is 7 and is in 2nd grade, and we have 3-year-old girl!
I am enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and working with young people. Relationships are the most important thing to me in my career, and every day I look forward to working with my classes and getting to know my students even better.
