TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am currently in my 10th year of teaching. Each year I grow a little more as an educator and learn something new about humanity. It's about the math, reading, writing, science, and social studies, but it's also about hope, empathy, healing, empowerment, and the giving of wings.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have always loved drawing so I include art into my lessons as much as I can. My wife and I share the journey of life with our two beautiful daughters so over the years I have become pretty good at making all types of voices (pirates, cowboys, superheroes, etc...). These voices help me bring the content I teach to life. I sing to my students almost daily and use dramatic arts to add a little zest to my teaching style (when teaching about pirates, I talk and walk like a pirate with a yard stick in my belt loop). My overall philosophy with day to day teaching is, "if I am having fun teaching, they should be having fun learning". I have found that children are the most magical of all people and I connect better with them if I step through my classroom door each morning with a little wonder of my own.
