I would like to welcome your family to the Fifth grade at Lowell Elementary School. I am excited to work with you and your child in the up-coming school year. Let me start by introducing myself. This is my 22nd year of teaching in Mesa. I taught one year at Lowell Elementary, thirteen years at Alma Elementary, four years at Sirrine, three years at Whittier, and know I am happy to be back at Lowell. I received my degree from the University of Northern Iowa and have received a Masters Degree in Elementary Education through NAU. I also have a degree in criminology. I reside in Mesa with my wife Karen and my dogs Bianca, Katie, and Koda. I love doing many outdoor activities. My favorite hobbies are golfing, reading, camping, spending time with my family, and cheering on the Diamondbacks.
