I have been teaching Theatre, English, Yearbook, and Film at Wilsonville High School in Wilsonville, Oregon since 2004. I have also directed the after-school theatre productions at the high school for the past 12 years. You can view our program at www.wildcatdrama.com.
I am a fun, energetic teacher who tries to get the kids involved in whatever we are doing in class. I like to get students up off their feet and do as many physical things as we can do in the context of the classes.
Lots of nice feedback from former students about how I positively influenced their lives.
I attended Arizona State University and graduated from The University of Wisconsin in 1997 with a BA in Humanistic Studies. In 2002, I graduated from Western Washington University with an MA in Theatre Arts. I completed my teaching certification WWU, as well.
I live in Oregon with my author-journalist wife, singing-dancing-acting daughter, two dogs, four cats, and a partridge in a pear tree. Looking for creative and inspirational classroom posters?
