The 2017-2018 school year will be my first year at Oakdale Middle School. I will be teaching all of the 6th grade science classes and 2 of the 4 7th grade classes. I am looking forward to a great school year!
My first teaching experience started off a little interesting! I moved from Mustang, Oklahoma to Anchorage, Alaska after graduating from college. I took a temporary position offered to me at the Juvenile Detention Center. I taught everything from Economics to Science. After that experience, I taught at a suburban high school in Eagle River, Alaska called Chugach High School. I taught mainly Chemistry, Biology, and Integrated Science. Couple of states and children later, we moved back to Oklahoma where I taught at my rival high school, Yukon High School. I taught Pre-AP Biology and Pre-AP Physical Science for 4 years. Finally, we moved to the Oakdale area where I volunteered and subbed at Oakdale. I fell in love with all of the teachers and staff!
I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have been married since 1998. I have two children Carson and Trevor. Carson attends Oklahoma State University and Trevor attends Edmond Memorial. We have 2 dogs, Bella and Chloe. Let us not forget our classroom guinea pig, Eleven.
When I am not teaching, I love to:
