This is my 4th year at Pioneer, and I'm still excited to be a Pirate! I currently teach 7th and 8th grade social studies. I'm also an assistant basketball coach. Previously, I taught social studies at Elma High School for 10 years. Along with this, I've coached football, wrestling, volleyball, and track at the high school and middle school levels. I earned a Bachelor's in Education and History at Northern Arizona University in 2003. Also, I obtained a Master's in Educational Leadership from City University in 2012.
I enjoy spending time with my wife, our NEW daughter born July 1st, and our two cats. Traveling is definitely a passion of mine, and I have spent many summer vacation months traveling to around 60 countries. I can't wait to see many more! Aside from traveling, I spend my time reading, watching football (GO HAWKS!), and exploring all the things Washington has to offer.
