*Physical EducationMy Story:Seven years ago, after a decade of being in sales for two different electrical contractors, I decided to take a leap of faith and do something I had considered for many years - become a teacher. I have been blessed to work with students who have diverse needs and learning styles ever since. I love teaching all of the academic subjects, along with Social/Emotional/Behavioral content, but most importantly, I enjoy learning about all of my students’ individual learning styles, strengths, and struggles, and working with the students and their teams to foster growth.I am married with 3 children. My wife is also a teacher in the district and works at Hayden Meadows. All three of our children attend school in the district, as well. They will be in 7th, 3rd, and 1st grades this school year.March of 2019 was the first time my wife and I visited beautiful Coeur d'Alene and the surrounding areas. Just 5 months later, in August of 2019, we moved our family here. We love boating out on the many beautiful lakes around the area, fishing, hiking, camping, and just enjoying what this area has to offer. I also enjoy snowboarding and will be looking to try some river surfing soon.I feel very blessed to be working with the incredibly professional staff at CMS, serving the amazing students who come here each day.Thanks for visiting my page.
