I first taught at BES for the 2018-2019 school year, and have returned again, starting in the 2021-2022 school year.
I began teaching in 1989 in Topeka, and have worked for the Topeka Catholic Schools, USD 434, USD 252, and USD 348. I have spent most of my career in education, but have also worked in the IT field.
After teaching for 8 years for USD 348, I was the district technology coordinator from 2013 to 2018.
My wife Chris and I have been married for 36 years. She is the reading specialist for Washburn Rural H.S. in Topeka.
Our children are grown and moved out. Our oldest daughter lives in Houston, TX with her husband; our son lives in Manhattan, KS; our youngest daughter is a senior and University of Kansas.
We have two dogs – Jack and Gizmo.
I love to read, I love to cook, I love to draw, and I am wanting to begin making wooden and/or metal rings.
