A Colorado native and a product of the United States Air Force, I have lived in 11 different states and taught in all kinds of school settings. The last 5 of my 27 years of teaching have been at Sparkman Middle School teaching physical science. I have degree in Chemistry from Colorado State University after which I worked for the State of Wyoming as a forensic chemist. Most of my career was spent teaching high school chemistry, biology and math, but I love the challenges and rewards the middle school setting offers.
I have been married for 34 years and have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. My daughters and their families live in the area, but my son has followed in his father's footsteps and is an Air Force officer.
