Welcome to Woodland Middle School. I am excited to be your U.S.. History teacher this year. Let me start by sharing some information about myself. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education from the University of Idaho. I also have a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, as well as an Administrative Certificate from the University of Idaho. This is my 16th year teaching at Woodland Middle School, but I have been involved with the Coeur d' Alene School district for many years as a coach. This is my eighth year teaching 8th grade U.S. History. I have spent my previous years at Woodland serving as a 6th grade teacher. Along with teaching, I am the atheltic director here at Woodland Middle School. I also serve as an assistant football coach at Coeur d' Alene High School. In my spare time I enjoy camping and fishing.
