I have taught Physical Education in Adams 12 Five Star Schools for the past 7 years. I am very excited to start my position as the Physical Education/ Health Teacher at Thunder Vista. Within my classroom you will find students activily engaged in meaningful lessons which highlights the Colorado Academic Standards for Health and Physical Education. My number one priority is safety, I make sure that all students learn the importance of risk management, understanding their surroundings and knowing how they influence the safety of themselves and others. Within my classroom you will also see students working hard on self evaluation, and monitoring their own learning at their own pace.
I am also an athletic coach in the Five Star District and I am currently the assistant district pole vault coach. I have coached varisty football at many of the Five Star high schools including Mountain Range and Northglenn. Aside from teaching and coaching I spend my free time with my wife Emily and daughter Graecyn. We enjoy spending the summers on the lake wake surfing and wakeboarding, as well as enjoying the Colorado mountains as we hike, mountain bike, camp and fly fish!
