Hello! Welcome to Mountainside and our class! To tell you a little bit about me, I graduated from Georgia State University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. After teaching 5th grade for 2 years in Atlanta, Georgia, I moved to Colorado with my family. This is when I joined the Mountainside family and I have been enjoying teaching in the military community ever since! I have taught both 2nd and 4th grade here at Mountainside, and feel right at home in the Fort Carson community. 

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and joined the Marine Corps right after high school. My duty stations included Cherry Point, NC, and Iwakuni, Japan, along with a six month float in the Mediterranean. While on the ship, I was lucky enough to visit Puerto Rico, Spain, Italy, Sicily, Malta, Greece, and Turkey! I have dabbled in other careers such as telecommunications and insurance, but ultimately found my home in education, where I plan to stay. 

My wife, Angie, is also in education and works with preschoolers. My two wonderful children Avery and Andrew have been brought up in district 8 schools, including Mountainside. When not in the classroom, my family and I enjoy Colorado with hiking, skiing, camping, riding bicycles, and also traveling to new and exciting places. 

I look forward to working with you and your child this year as we grow our minds and character together!
