About me

Welcome to Social Studies and Computer Essentials

This year I am teaching: 

·       SS 08 Social Studies (Gen)

This will be my 1st year teaching at Shepherd Jr High, I am super excited.

I am originally from Mesa, Arizona. I attended Arizona State University and received my Bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies in History and Education in 2009. In April of 2017, I received my Masters in Secondary Education from Grand Canyon University.

I am certified to Teach History, middle school Social Studies, and I am also SEI endorsed.

I have lived in Arizona all my life. I am a product of Mesa Public Schools having graduated from Westwood High School.

History is a passion of mine. I love the Civil War, WWII and The Civil Rights Movement.

I am excited to be teaching Social Studies and Computer Essentials this year. I look forward to working with all my wonderful students and their families.

I am married, have two children, and a six-year-old grandchild. We have two dogs Hennessy Paisley and Bosco.   

My personal hobbies include spending time with my family, traveling with my wife, and collecting history memorabilia and books.
