Biographical Sketch: 

TIt is the 2017/2018 school year and I am excited to join the team for DP track IB students here at Poudre. In my short tenure here I have had the opportunity to wear several hats and the new ones I try on this year include Leadership, Honors MYP 9 History/Geography, and I am ready to see our Mock Trial team go to state. As a note about my life behind the scenes,I have two amazing kids, Daniel and Lilly, both of whom light up my life. My wife, Casey, is amazing and is always here to support me no matter how much I overwork during the year.

About My Classroom: 

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.
