This is my first year teaching classes that are only one quarter, nine weeks, in length.
I value relationships and getting to know my students and then using that knowledge to help guide and facilitate learning throughout the year. With only having nine weeks I feel like I need to ramp up my relationship building!
The purpose of this blog is for you to get to know who I am. I am going to limit this to only five
(I -1, II - 2, III - 3, IV - 4, V - 5) areas.
I am a Christian. I follow Jesus' teachings that I need to love my God and others, equally. I will do whatever I can for you and not expect you to be perfect, because I am not. Every day I am trying to live this out in my personal life and as an educator.
I am a husband, father, son and brother. I love and value in my family. I am married to Whitney and I have three children, Trinity - 10, Kayleah - 9 and Dayton - 3. I love my parents, Duane and Bonnie, with all my heart. I have six siblings, two brothers and three sisters; Chet, Miranda, Tera, Tanner and Maggie. I love getting together with them over holidays and other family get togethers!
I am a learner. I love learning new things and finding new things to challenge myself.

I am an athlete. I try to workout 4-6 times a week doing CrossFit. I try to get these workouts completed in the morning because after school I am super tired. I love playing sports specifically basketball, golf, softball and weightlifting. I love the discipline of trying to get better physically, mentally and emotionally. I coach the JV boys basketball team at St. Thomas More where I also graduated from.
I am passionate about empowering young people to use their voice for good.
I am an educator because I want to help you understand that you can make a difference in the world.
I am always trying to think of creative ways for you to be able to demonstrate your learning and why it is important to you.
I am excited to get to know you! Please leave a comment about something that you identify with that is also you!
