TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Providing effective teaching resources to promote learning excellence for elementary students. 27 years of teaching, tutoring, and mentoring experience.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I would describe my teaching style as organized and structured as well as warm and inviting. I believe in the power of positive experiences. I proactively set my students up for success and achievement. I have a very soft spot for those who struggle either academically or behaviorally. I strive to be a calming influence and an effective support for them.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was recognized by the Davis School District Board of Education and the superintendent for outstanding achievement and received a very nice plaque. 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 attending college. I am also "dad" to a new goldendoodle puppy who is a delight to have around - although requires me to keep on my toes. I have written several novels and have waited until now to pursue publishing. I get great enjoyment out of writing and creating materials. In my spare time, I love to take walks or runs, play the drums, play basketball, and just enjoy nature and the many wonderful people I come in contact with.
