TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for twelve years. I have a Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction as well as an administrator's license.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am energetic, fast-paced, and highly dedicated to teaching. My students might say that my class is challenging but also incredibly fun!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have graduated as the youngest in my undergraduate program as well as the first in my class. My wife is a senior graphic designer at her company and we collaboratively create lessons, posters, other helpful classroom visuals.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Northwestern State University in Louisiana and then I went on to obtain my Master's from the University of Colorado in Denver. In addition, I have obtained my principal's license.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am from Louisiana but I have lived in Colorado since 2006. I have taught for over ten years now, and I love to ride my motorcycle in my free time! Follow us on Pinterest or Facebook to see when we add new products!
