I moved to Arizona in 1985 from Herington, Kansas.  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Arizona State University.  Later I went to Northern Arizona University and received my Master's Degree in Education. 

I have been teaching in the Mesa Public School's District since 1991.  My first two years of teaching were at Highland Elementary, then I moved to Kerr Elementary and had the wonderful opportunity of opening a brand new school.  I moved to Hale Elementary 2016 and I am currently teaching fourth grade here at Hale.  I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 6th grades over the last twenty-plus years of teaching.

My wife, Cindy, and I have two wonderful children.  Their names are Seth and Carly.  Seth is attending Capella University and studying clinical psychology.  He is working on his Masters.  My daughter is in her senior year at Desert Ridge High School.  She is also very active in sports.  She is preparing for college and planning to go into physical therapy.

If I am not teaching here at Hale, I am coaching one of my Arizona Warrior basketball teams at Inspire Courts in Gilbert, Arizona.
