About Me
Why do you love being a teacher?: 
I love being a teacher because I get to teach kids the skills necessary for a lifetime of fitness, games and activities. Teaching and coaching have always been my passion and I still have that fire inside of me like I did the first year that I was teaching.
What do you like to do outside of school?: 

I like to hang our with family which includes my wife, Amy, who is a 1st grade teacher at Zach and my two kids, Payton, who is 8 and Rylan, who is 6.  I enjoy going to concerts and playing golf.  I am also the boy's golf coach at Fort Collins High School.

What is a favorite quote of yours?: 

"You don't realize what you have until it is gone"

About My Classroom: 

I like to do a variety of activities with the kids.  I want all the kids to feel like they can be successful in PE, not just the good athletes.  The primary kids focus on locomotor skills, hand/eye coordination, catching, kicking and throwing, along with a variety of other skills.  The older kids focus more on teamwork, track and field, health and fitness, and sportsmanship along with other sport and skill concepts.
