I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grade in southern California.
I teach with enthusiasm and passion and I try my best to draw that out in all my students! Each year brings excitement and inquiry that you can never imagine.
I received my certificate for completing the UCLA Summer Writing Project. It was quite an honor for me.
I attended Suffolk University in Boston for my Bachelor's. Long Beach State is where I received my teaching credential. I earned my masters at National University in curriculum with a writing focus.
I live in California with my wife, Christy and our son, Ciaran. I am an avid sports fan, enjoy traveling, music, writing and the beach. Please feel free to visit my blog at the following site: http://killeenupyourwriting.blogspot.com
