About me: I have been teaching... a long time. I completed my BA from CU Boulder in 1990, double-majoring in History and Political Science, additionally receiving a teaching license. I received a MA in US History from CU Denver in 1999. My first position for Adams 12 was at Niver Creek Middle School where I taught for seven years. I came to Horizon High in 1999 and have been very blessed by students, parents, staff, and administration. Since 2013, I have taught AP World History and for the past four years have served College Board as a reader on the AP World History national exam. I currently am a member of Horizon's Instructional Leadership Team.
My personal interests include working out, playing guitar, watching the Buffs, Rockies, Nuggets, and Broncos, and playing nerdy games of all sorts. For pleasure I read schlock science fiction, graphic novels, and anything by Cormac McCarthy. My wife and I are the proud parents of five great kids, four of whom are Horizon grads while the fifth is currently enrolled as a junior. Our household is very much a part of Hawk Nation!
