About me

The best topics, when it comes to teaching 8th Grade World History content, are the Industrial Revolution, World War I, World War II, and Cold War Units of study. This is a primary reason why I am passionate about teaching World History. Of course I am well suited to working with 8th Graders because of my high degree of patience. I have been working at East Valley M.S. since 2006. My family is my world! My main reason for my life. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 28 years. We have 2 high school kids who both have straight A's and a black lab named Jake (he's kind of dumb, but is a great dog 😝😝). My hobbies include mountain biking, skiing, combat sports like football and MMA, NBA basketball, and jacking weights in the gym.
