About Me

I am currently a special education teacher at Carson High School in Carson City, NV.  Previously, I taught US Government, US History, and AP US History for 11 years, served as a technology learning strategist, and served as a dean of students prior to deciding to return to the classroom from administration.  I served one year as an alternative school physical education teacher before moving from Las Vegas to Reno, NV and beginning my current position in Carson City. I am a Google Certified Educator, Level 1 & 2, a Pear Deck Certified Coach, Apple Teacher (Mac & iPad), Certified Microsoft Innovative Educator, and have presented at numerous educational technology conferences, including EdTech Team Google for Education Summits, various CUE, Inc. affiliate events, and several school district workshops and conferences.  I am married to another educator, Mary, a speech-language pathologist, who is currently attending graduate school full time at the University of Nevada, pursuing her masters in speech-language pathology.  Together, we have a daughter, Elsa (6), and a son, Reed (3).
