I am in my 11th year at Salk, and am very please to be a part of the Salk Community. This year in 5th grade we will be introducing a new Departmentalized program, which means your students will be switching classes by subjects. Math will be taught by Kathy Hines. Reading and Science will be taught by Jody Wood and I will be teaching Writing and Social Studies. We are very excited about these plans, as this will enable us to focus better on students needs, as well, less subject areas, which enable stronger planning for lesson and activities.
Teaching is my second career. My first career involved almost twenty years in various capacities in Behavioral and Mental Health. My wife and I managed and worked with children in a family styled group home for over 9 years. I have also worked with Seriously Mentally Ill Adults and Youth in both a psychiatric hospital setting, as well as an out-patient clinic.
I am a long time resident of Mesa. My wife and I raised our three sons here, and all three are products of the Mesa Public School System.
