Welcome to sixth grade Language Arts at Horseshoe Trails Elementary,
Let me begin by introducing myself. I was born in Phoenix, Arizona and grew up going to school in the Cave Creek School District. I love the community and that was one of the main reasons why I came back. I went to the University of Arizona and after graduating I remained down in Southern Arizona to teach for the past two years. I previously taught first and second grade, but I have experience working with all age groups. I got married in March of 2015 and my wife and I decided that after the 2014-2015 school year we were going to move back to the Phoenix area to be closer to our families. This will be my sixth year of teaching and fourth at Horseshoe Trails. I have taught fifth and sixth grades at HTES.
In my “free time” I enjoy running with my dog, listening to music, watching sporting events, catching up on TV shows, and spending time with my family and friends. I am an avid sports fan and can be seen representing the Arizona Wildcats and Diamondbacks frequently.
