About Me
Educational Background: 

 BS in Mathematics - Colorado State University

Biographical Sketch: 

I am a Fort Collins native, a 1970 graduate of Poudre High School, and a 1974 graduate of Colorado State University. I returned to teach at Poudre in 1975, and I am the longest serving instructor in the Mathematics department. I've taught all levels of mathematics at Poudre, and I am proud to say that several of my former students have also come back to teach at Poudre. During my first ten years here I also served as the athletic trainer. I am currently the math contest coordinator for our school.

Married to my high school sweetheart, I have two daughters, and three grandchildren. Gardening is my main form of therapy. Time spent with a fly rod in hand on a small stream or pond is especially treasured, although too infrequent. I am a teacher of Scottish country dance, holding a certificate from the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society headquartered in Edinburgh, Scotland. Dancing since 1988, it is more than a hobby, closer to an obsession. My wife and I travel routinely to dance venues in the US, Canada, and Scotland where we have made many lasting friendships.

My Classroom
Courses Taught: 

Algebra 2, AP Statistics, IB Standard Level Mathematics

About My Classroom: 

Lecture, demonstration, and practice are the main components of my classroom. Much time is spent trying to show how multiple areas of mathematics are connected with unifying threads. I am known for a dry/caustic wit and my large collection of novelty ties.
