I have been teaching in the Camas School District since 2003. I hold a
Bachelor's Degree in Education from Washington State University, and a
Master's Degree in Technology in Education from City University.
I am a Camas resident with two daughters who are Camas alumni. My wife and I
just celebrated 25 years of marriage! We have a German shepherd
named Kira, a black lab mix named Payton, a border collie mix named Riley,
three horses (Chrissy, Sultan, and Denver), and a very old goldfish.
I was born and raised in Chicago and am a huge fan of the Chicago Bears
football team and the Cubs and White Sox baseball teams.
My mission for the class is to create a comfortable, yet challanging
learning environment for all students of various learning styles, which
encourages them to accomplish things they once believed was beyond their
grasp, by promoting life-long learning skills, curiosity, common sense, risk-
taking, and pride of ownership. Knowledge will be constructed and used in
ways that are meaningful to each individual student. Therefore students
will be able to use this knowledge in real-life situations and become
productive members of society.
