A bit about me… This will be my first year at Webster Elementary. I previously taught 4th grade at Cityview Elementary for 3 years. I live in Bloomington with my wife and 2 dogs Ruby and Sunny. In my spare time I like to go running, walk my dogs, and spending time on my deck! I enjoy teaching and I am looking forward to a great year!

I believe in… learning something new everyday. There are so many opportunities to learn throughout the day both in school and out. I try to model that learning is important no matter what age you are.

My education journey… I enjoyed my education experience. I had great teachers who showed that learning is fun. They helped me develop a passion for learning and that is what I am trying to pass on to my students.

Books… I love to read! I read all different types of books and genres. I tend to switch between fiction and non-fiction books. Some of my favorite books are The Stand, A Brief History of Time, The Book of Basketball, and the Harry Potter series.

Stories to tell… my part time Hy-vee job, glacier hike in Iceland, dog sitting Molly
