Bio

I have spent my adult life pursuing two careers. The first career has been as a MS/HS instructor in Special Education and most recently in Industrial Technology. The second career was spent in the business world where I was the president of a roofing and contracting company. Both of these experiences have been beneficial to me and have helped me improve my ability to help students learn. Currently, I am an instructor in Building Trades.

I have spent my adult life pursuing two careers. The first career has been as a MS/HS instructor in Special Education and most recently in Industrial Technology. The second career was spent in the business world where I was the president of a roofing and contracting company. Both of these experiences have been beneficial to me and have helped me improve my ability to help students learn. Currently, I am an instructor in Building Trades. Prior to that, I spent 17 years as a special education instructor, primarily in a high school setting. My experience with special education students was incredibly valuable. In this capacity, I was exposed to a wide array of high school curriculum areas. This allowed me to obtain a solid foundation in English, Physical Science, Biology, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry and Social Studies. In addition, I learned, through my students with learning deficits, that there were many different ways that students learn. I have been able to utilize these strategies to help students learn.

I have a thorough understanding of the basic concepts of Algebra 1 and have been able to help students understand these concepts

A combination of the understanding of the needs of students with special needs and an understanding that students learn in different ways and the best way to help them learn is to tailor learning to their individual style of learning.

30 years of experience primarily in football, wrestling and soccer have taught me that building a relationship is of primary importance and then utilizing that relationship in a positive manner to help the student athlete improve in the technical aspects of the game.
