Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching since 2000 in a variety of classrooms, levels, and subjects. These experiences include both middle school and high school teaching; they also include assignments in math, science, English, and social studies. At times I have worked with students struggling as beginning readers, and I have also taught honors level courses. I try to make sure students work hard in class and push themselves to learn new things, but we also try to maintain perspective about what the truly important things are in life.
I have had the pleasure of coaching high school baseball, football, and softball. I really value the opportunity coaching has allowed me to share wonderful moments of success and frustrating moments of temporary failure with athletes and their families.
