Teaching since?I have been teaching since 1998. I have taught 3rd grade for 5 years, 1st grade for 7 years and 2nd grade for 6 years.
Why teaching?I believe the meaning of life is to live it! I want to share that idea with everyone and push them to live life to the fullest!
I received my Masters degree in Elementary Education from the University of Colorado Denver.
I’m a Colorado boy who loves to ramble through the mountains on my days off. Most of all I enjoy fishing and rafting.
