I love having the opportunity to help kids learn and move from a feeling of confusion to place of understanding and wanting to know more. I also love working together with teachers to collaboratively create units that give our students a global perspective.
I enjoy being outside playing and running with my wife, two daughters and dog, Ollie. I love traveling and woodworking. I am a beginner at fly fishing. I unwind by reading and listening to books on tape. I also love cooking (and eating).
My favorite adult book right now is Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. This is an unbelievably true story of survival and the power of forgiveness. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling is my favorite children’s series. I love how each book tells of a year in the life of these young wizards as they fight for what is good.
I love to cook. Whether it is on during a weekend or after a long or stressful day, spending some time being creative in my kitchen brings me happiness helps me to relax.
Our school is an amazing community of students who are ready to work together and learn about the world around them. Our entire staff recognize the significance of their jobs at CLPE and strive to provide a global education for our students. In our school we are all educators.
My IB classroom is a place for teachers to work together and create amazing units of inquiry for our students. My room is also a place where students can use the IB Learner Profile to become globally minded citizens.
