I have spent the majority of my career in high schools but have also taught in middle and elementary school at beginning of my career as an educator. Although my degrees are in economics, theology and Spanish, I now teach the four English Language Arts of Thinking, Listening, Reading & Writing. I currently teach at private Christian high school which is a Project Based Learning School. I formerly taught Spanish at an urban public high school. I live in Indianapolis with wife and kids and am blessed to equip the next generation of leaders to read, write and think well.
I teach a Project Based Learning curriculum and gear all input towards meaningful output. All work is posted on class website, presented in front of a community audience or shared with parents and peers. This is done to increase the ownership that students take over their own work.
I have been a Top 10 teacher at my last high school two separate years.
Master of Divinity, Master of Education, Bachelors in Economics and Spanish, currently taking online English coursework
I read a book a week and am constantly trying to cultivate the 'cathedral of my own mind' in order to create better structures of thought in my own students.
