I am an Arizona native and a graduate of MPS (Mesa High, class of '81, Carry On).  Shortly after high school, I joined the U.S. Navy and began 9+ years as a nuclear engineer serving on aircraft carriers the U.S.S. Nimitz and the U.S.S. Carl Vinson. My travels took me around the world to more than forty countries on every continent except Antarctica.  Ask me anything about my service to our country, the GREATEST on the planet.  Ask me about any country, most likely, I have been there.


Following the Navy, I completed my education at Eastern Washington University where I received my BA in Early Childhood Education and Reading.  I taught 2 years in Washington State before going overseas and teaching in Kuwait for 2 years and Peru for a year.  I earned my Masters in Administration from the College of New Jersey in 2000.  In 2001, I joined the MPS team at Highland Elementary, then on to Mendoza Elementary and now I am having fun with 7th and 8th graders here at Shepherd.

On New Year's Eve, 2011, I married the incredibly wonderful and fantastically beautiful Ann.  I could not be happier!  I feel very fortunate and extremely blessed to have three daughters of my own, the oldest an ASU graduate, the youngest two are world travelers.  I also have three great step-children. The youngest attends Red Mountain and the oldest is on his way in dentistry.

Don't tell anyone, this is not a math class, this is a success training class!  In the Brain Gym, we become successful exercising our brain by building our character and by building our intelligence.  Your brain is a muscle and we are going to work it.  Success training is not about ability, it is about who you are and who you want to be.  You have 100% control over and 100% power over the two most important traits to building your character and intelligence; Attitude and Effort!  In this class, Let your efforts rise above your excuses.

Please contact me any time!  I am here for you.   I believe this will be a fun, exciting and yes, challenging year! Parents/Caregivers, you are also invited to join us during class, no appointment necessary, drop in any time!
