I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a major in Sociology emphasizing in Criminology. I was a walk on as a Football player at NIU, while on a  wrestling scholarship. When I graduated I was fortunate to get hired onto a large city law enforcement agency until I retired. My family and I moved out to Arizona in 2005. I began my second career as a teacher in 2005, earning a Master's Degree in Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment in 2008 from Walden University and earning my second Master's Degree from Northern Arizona University in 2010 in Special Education Cross Categorical. I am on my 16th. year teaching and coaching in Arizona, and I have been blessed with having two careers that I enjoy each day going to work and learning  from my colleagues, as well as my students.
