About The Teacher
I came to Carriage Crest in the fall of 1999. I started as an instructional assistant in the self contained classroom, where I worked for 2 years. Then I made it to the "big leagues" and started teaching in my own classroom in 2002. I've taught 5 years in the 5th grade, 3 years teaching a 4/5 split, and this is my 7th time teaching 4th. 

I grew up in Yakima, WA graduating from Eisenhower H.S. Next I went to YVCC and then transferred to Eastern Washington University. I received my biology degree, teaching degree, and met my wife, Joelle, in the process. We moved over to the west side after graduation. I'm still not used to the rainy weather.   

My wife and I have a daughter, Mikayla, who just turned 12 in August, and a son, Cameron, who turned 9 in May. I also have an 21 year old, Kylee, who is a junior at CWU and shares my birthday. Last but not least, we have Kaitlyn who turns 6 in November. We also have a dog, Bella, 9 fish, and a cat named Abby.

I enjoy fishing, camping, and watching the M's and Seahawks (especially when they are winning). I enjoy collecting baseball cards (which my wife wants to throw out) and coins. I also like to play the Wii/XBox, read, bowl, and spend quality time with the family.

A great year awaits us!
