About the Teacher:

I’m over-the-top excited to be in kindergarten this year.  I can’t wait to learn, laugh, read, experience, play, joke, and love with my students!  This is going to be my 23rd year of teaching, all at Bransford! My wife, Corrie, is also a teacher at Bransford, that’s where we met (awww).  She teaches 3rd grade and does an amazing job at it! We have two daughters and a daugter (pronounced dog-ter). Our older, Megan, is off to UT in Austin as a freshman.  Our younger, Jenna, is a sophomore at Grapevine HS. 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, camping, 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.”
