I have a B.A. degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Language Arts. I love photography, the arts, the outdoors, sports, and travel. During college I mentored students from Japan, the Marshall Islands, and Korea. During a tour of duty in the Army I was stationed in Mannheim, Germany for 3 years. A part time job in college providing residential care to developmentally delayed adults is also part of my varied life experiences.
My basketball experience began in Elementary School and continues to this day. As a Fifth Grader I was taller than most of my classmates. This inspired my teacher and the coach to ask me to join the team. As I developed my skills and experienced the thrill of competition I fell in love with the game. I played on my school team all through Junior High and High School. During two summers in High School I went to a week long basketball camp and further developed my skills and knowledge of the game. I was offered an opportunity to join a small college team after High School but a tour of military duty prevented from accepting the invitation. I continue to read about, study, and learn about the game. Learning the fundamental basic skills are the building blocks upon which future growth and success is built.
To this day I'm an avid student of the game and love to play any chance I get. Basketball provides a wonderful avenue of athletic competition that teaches teamwork, dedication, goal setting, and many other elements of success and good character. I believe that participating in team sports can be a significant opportunity for people of all ages to maintain physical fitness and enjoy the satisfaction of contributing to a team effort.

During my time in college I tutored students from Japan, Korea, and the Marshall Islands. A three year tour of duty in the Army living in Germany gave me experience learning a different language and culture. I've been tutoring a young person from Italy attending Community College. I tutor the ESL students attending the ESL School at the international agency where I work.
My football experience began in Elementary School and continues to this day. I was taller and heavier than most of my classmates. During PE class and recess I was always one of the first chosen by the team captains.
As I developed my skills and experienced the thrill of competition I learned to love the game more and more.
I played on my school team all through High School. Because my school was a small country school we played in an 8-man football league. This meant with fewer players than the normal 11 man team all team members played offense and defense. Playing both sides of the ball provided me a wonderful opportunity to develop offensive and defensive skills and a more complete knowledge of the game. I continue to study and learn about the game. Learning the fundamental basic skills are the building blocks upon which future growth and success is built.
To this day I'm an avid student of the game and love to play any chance I get. Using a Nerf football is a great way for younger people to learn the fundamentals as their physical capabilities develop. Football provides a wonderful avenue of athletic competition that teaches teamwork, dedication, goal setting, and many other elements of success and good character. I believe that participating in team sports can be a significant opportunity for people of all ages to help maintain physical fitness and experience the joy and thrill of competition.
