I completed all my schooling K-12 in Academy School District 20, and I graduated from Colorado State University in Fort Collins Spring 2011 with a B.S. in Natural Science, a concentration Biology, while seeking education licensure. I am excited to be here at Challenger.
Teaching is more than making sure no child is left behind. It is my job as a teacher to draw out that special part of all my students that helps them succeed. A student should be able to leave my classroom at the end of the day having grabbed success. For the students who do not struggle in the day to day learning environment, it is my job to push them to their limits while expanding their views on the world and the content area they are in. It is my belief that science has concepts that every student can grasp and thus succeed.
Out of the classroom I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love camping, hiking, and most outdoor summer sports, as well as sitting on the couch reading books and watching movies with my wife.
