    *please see me for the sign in information for schoology.

    I received my Master's degree from Baker University; prior to that, I graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education, English. I began my first teaching assignment in January of 2008 at Blue Valley West teaching Communication Arts 1. 

    In the summer of 2008 I was fortunate enough to marry my high school sweetheart, who also happens to be a second grade teacher in the Blue Valley District. My wife and I then pursued a dream of living abroad and taught in Rio de Janeiro from 2010 through 2012.  Living in Rio was an amazing life experience, but I am incredibly excited to be back at Blue Valley West!

    I am also an assistant Cross Country coach at Blue Valley West, and co-sponsor of the History Club.  In my free time, I enjoy running, music, and reading.
