About Me

 I love history and have a passion for sharing it with others.  I  became a teacher after helping a fellow employee at my warehouse job get his GED.  It was really rewarding, and it was something I discovered that I had a knack for.  After several years of graduate school, I started teaching in LPS in 1997.  I started my teaching career at Southeast and enjoyed working there for seven years.  In 2004 I made the move to North Star in where I currently teach US History and AP US History.
