I have taught Physical Education in Adams 12 Five Star Schools for the past 10 years. I am very excited to start my 4th year as on of the Physical Education/ Health Teachers 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. I Coach Varsity football at Pomona High School in Jeffco and I Coach Pole Vault for the track and field program at Riverdale Ridge in school district 27J . Aside from teaching and coaching I spend my free time with my wife Emily, daughter Graecyn (4) and son Kenton (1). 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!
