About Me

Educational History:

I grew up in Hesston, KS and graduated from high school there in 2002. I've always been big into sports and in high school I played basketball and tennis. I then attended Hesston College where I played tennis and received an associate's degree in 2004. To finish my bachelor's I traveled to Harrisonburg, Virginia and graduated from Eastern Mennonite University in 2006 with a degree in History and Social Studies and Secondary Education and a minor in Political Science. I recently started work on a Master’s Degree in history from Emporia State.

Degrees and Certifications:

I am certified to teach a wide variety of the social sciences including US History, World History, Government, Geography, Current Events, Economics, Sociology, and Psychology. I've had the opportunity to teach many of these in my 15 years of teaching.

Current Position:

I'm very excited continue teaching here at DHS. Not only is it much closer for me but it gives me the chance to focus on a few subject areas. My schedule for the 1st Semester is as follows:

1st Hr - US History

2nd Hr - Plan

3rd Hr - AP Government and Politics

4th Hr - US History

5th Hr - US History

6th Hr - US History

7th Hr - AP Government and Politics

8th Hr - iClass

Previous Position:

I've spent my first nine years teaching both middle and high school social studies at Caldwell High School in Caldwell, KS which is near the Oklahoma border. For most of those years I was my own department and taught 6-12 social studies. The variety of subject matter was fun, but the age range was challenging. I also coached basketball for each of those nine years, was the senior project coordinator and STUCO sponsor at different times. I was the head boys basketball coach for the high school for the last five seasons.

Family Information:

I married my beautiful wife Allison nine years ago we live in Derby with our daugher Aven, son Calloway, and our dog Lucy. My wife has a master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Friends University and is currently staying at home with our daughter. On the side she teaches online English to foreign children. DHS has been a great place to work and allow me remain closer to home. 

Personal Information:

When not teaching, I enjoy being active and playing basketball wherever I can around the Wichita area or just relaxing at home and cheering on the Jayhawks!
