About The Teacher

This is my 21st year of teaching 6th grade, 20th in the Walled Lake School 
District.  My first 4 years were spent at Hickory Woods, then when the district moved the 6th grade 
to the middle school, I followed along with them.   I love teaching 6th graders.
My wife(a 2nd grade teacher) and I have been happily married for 18 years and we have 
two children(10th grader and 7th grader)  and  2 dogs.  
My number one leisure activity is spending time outside with my dogs.....my family wanders out 
once in awhile.  I enjoy riding my 2 Honda Mini Bikes, golfing with my buddies Bubba and Mr. 
Spickard, or just being outside.  
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English and Social Science from Michigan State 
University, my teaching certification from Aquinas College, and my Masters of 
Education from Marygrove College.
I love being in the classroom with my students, challenging them daily, and 
watching them grow intellectually and socially. Instilling a sense of pride in their ATTITUDE, 
QUALITY, AND EFFORT and seeing the excitement as the kids "get it" is what teaching is all 
about.      
I look forward to a productive and positive year with my students, making sure they 
become advocates for themselves and are more than prepared for 7th grade.
If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail me or give me a call.  
Thanks for taking a look!
