About Me....

I have been teaching in Howell for just over ten years now and have been part of the CHANGE program for 7 years.  I couldn't imagine teaching anywhere but Howell as I am a Land O' Pines and Howell High School graduate myself.  My wife was also a Howell grad and since we have decided make Howell our home, our two daughters will be attending Howell schools as well.  While I'm sure there are other wonderful districts around, I get to know that my daughters will be attending a school district that will allow them to flourish and I am proud they will be Howell students.
 
I love music, sports, gaming, spending time with my dog, and being outdoors.  My wife and I love to travel but with our two young daughters, we haven't been able to as much as we would like lately.  Many of the incentives I run in class are team-building and puzzle/game-based as I feel these activities really engage our students.
 
I'm looking forward to another successful year here at South and to getting to know this year's students!
