About the Teacher:

I’m over-the-top excited to be back in fourth again this year.  I can’t wait to learn, laugh, read, experience, play, joke, and love with my students!  This is going to be my 27th year of teaching, all at Bransford! My wife, Corrie, is also a teacher at Bransford, that’s where we met.  She teaches 3rd grade and does an amazing job at it! We have two daughters and a dog. Our older, Megan, is heading back to UT in Austin as a Longhorn.  Our younger, Jenna, is heading up to UNT in Denton this fall. Our dog, Gwen, is pretty much scared of everything and likes to bark at it to let it know. When not teaching or hanging out with my family, I enjoy reading, cycling, and woodworking.  I love building all kinds of furniture for family and friends. I am a diehard Minnesota Vikings fan and always feel that “this year is the year.”

Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.
