I am excited for the upcoming year as a teacher here at Poudre High School. This year I'll be maintaining my schedule of History 10, DP-track History 10, and a couple sections of a class called Facing History and Ourselves: Holocaust and Human Behavior. I am eager to spend the year developing my craft and having fun with a variety of subjects and classes. This should be an exciting year as I am unfamiliar with 4/5 of the people in my classes so I will have a lot of new people to meet and get to know. At home, My daughter Lilly is entering middle school and my son Daniel is facing down a difficult Junior year full of AP classes. I'm so proud to be a part of a family with a serious thirst for knowledge as my wife is also pursuing a graduate degree at CSU in addition to the many other things that she does.
Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. - Miles Kington

As an educator, my goal is to help all students achieve to their highest potential. In my history classroom, I enjoy helping students learn important skills and critical assessment of historical knowledge. I believe that the school is not a place of factoids and knowledge, but instead a place where we grow and learn as a community through critical thought and analysis of historical perspectives. It is my continuous goal to provide a safe, fun, and democratic learning space where students take an active role in their education and get to experience history in a variety of ways. The aims of my classroom are to promote thinking skills, writing, reading, civic engagement, critical analysis, responsibility, and diversity.
