I have been teaching elementary level students since 2000. Working with kids is one of the most rewarding experiences one can ask for. I have spent 1 year as a computer teacher (1200 students), 3 years as a 5th grade teacher, and I have been teaching 6th grade since 2005. Currently I am a 1/2 day teacher and 1/2 day administrator and I LOVE it.
I work hard to be a hands-on teacher where students are given the chance to do the learning and teaching.
I was a Scholastic Teacher Advisor in 2006-2007.
I received my associates degree from the College of Eastern Utah (Now Utah State Eastern). I then received my bachelors in elementary education from Southern Utah University. I obtained my masters in educational leadership from the University of Utah in 2011.
I am the father of six awesome children and have an amazingly artistic and creative wife! I am looking forward to networking with educators and others alike! Thanks for stopping by.
