I treat my students as I expect my children are treated in school. I believe in structured settings and adherence to classroom rules, while also teaching and modeling soft skills like empathy, compassion and ownership. If I can help mold a classroom into a safe and fun environment where students feel comfortable pushing their themselves; then I will consider my mission accomplished!
Fun Fact: I am the Vice President of the Valley View Teacher's Union. I believe in our teachers and believe supporting them to the greatest extent possible ultimately benifiets the educational experience of our students.
My wife is a kindergarten teacher in the Valley View School District. We have a 3 year old daughter and a 3 month old son.
