I have had the pleasure of working in the Lake Stevens School District since 1996, spending the first several years as a substitute teacher. In 2001, I became a full time staff member across the lake at North Lake Middle School where I taught 8th grade block. In 2006, I relocated here at LSMS where, until this year, I have been teaching World History and Language Arts to inquisitive 6th graders. This year I am moving up in the world and teaching 7th grade Medieval History and Language Arts.
In my spare time, I spend time with my family and as your student will quickly tell you, I can be found on a river bank fishing for just about anything that will bite. My motto is: "give a man a fish and he can eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he has a ready excuse to avoid yardwork for the rest of his life."
