                        Teaching, family, gardening and bird-watching are my passions.

I've been married for 32 years now, with two daughters ages 16 and 20, one in college and the other at Ramona High School.

  I first graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Biology and then a degree in Medical Technology from the Oregon Health Sciences University.  I worked in the field of biotechnology for 16 years, conducting research, collaborating with scientific teams to write grants and develop products focusing on bacterial, plant and mammalian genetics.  I am a huge University of Oregon ducks fan and my classroom reflects that as I strive to promote career and college readiness to my students.

After leaving the field of biotechnology, I became a stay-at-home-dad for six years, helping to raise our daughters, by far my most challenging career move.

I received my multiple subject teaching credential in 2010 and my specialized academic instructor credential in 2012. I have previously taught at James Dukes Elementary School.   Before receiving my teaching credential(s), I worked as a para-educator at Barnett Elementary School.  

I am currently a science teacher at Olive Pierce Middle School.

I have lived in Ramona since 2004 and currently share the space with my family, four dogs, one cat and seven chickens and hundreds of plants on 1 1/2 acres of land.
