Originally I am from Montana. I moved my family to Lincoln so that my children could have more learning opportunities. I love to coach my children in the sport of wrestling and to teach them how to draw. This year, my wife and I celebrated ten years of marriage. In the summer, I work on old houses and install floors. I love to figure out how things work in the different trades. My dad was a tradesman and my mother a nurse. I have nine siblings- seven are teachers. I am grateful to be a part of teaching the future generation. In eighth grade science, students learn Astronomy, Physics, Cells and Heredity. In the after-school Edventure academy students learn to write programs/codes for robots and video games. I also coach the FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL). The FLL teams compete at regional and state competitions.
I earned a Biology degree from the University of Montana and a master degree in education from the University of Nebraska. I worked in an animal physiology science lab where I conducted research on the reproductive development in the Meishan breed of swine. I learned programming at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge. My educational goal is to earn a doctoral degree in educational technology.
