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 37 years. She is a high school English teacher for USD 244.
Our children are grown and moved out. Our oldest daughter lives in Houston, TX with her husband; our son lives in Denver; our youngest daughter is a teacher in France.
We have one dog – Gizmo.
I love to read, I love to cook, I love to draw, and I love leathercrafting.
