TEACHING EXPERIENCE

27+ years of teaching, tutoring, and mentoring experience.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I specialize in motivational learning. I take pride in designing educational materials that motivate and engage even the most reluctant learner. I provide challenging activities that are highly effective and meet educational goals.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was recognized by the Davis School District Board of Education and the superintendent for outstanding achievement. This was manly due to my involvement on district level committees and my helping to craft and implement several district programs including year-round schools.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I attended Skyline High School in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was a great school and an awesome experience. I attended the University of Utah and received my education degree. Since then, I have taken many hours of additional courses and training from various institutions to further by teaching skills.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a proud father of a son who was adopted from Russia at the age of eight. He is now grown and working. I am also "dad" to a goldendoodle who takes ME on walks to keep me active. I enjoy writing novels along with producing effective and motivating educational materials. In my spare time, I love to take walks or runs, play basketball, and just enjoy nature and the many wonderful people I come in contact with.

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
