I will be wearing a mask to begin the school year.



I grew up in suburban Denver and am a huge Bronco fan.  After going to college in Salt Lake City, Denver and London, England I graduated from Metropolitan State University in Denver with a BA in History and a minor in Political Science.  I am married, and our son graduated from BGHS in 2019, earning the IB Diploma.  He is now is a Dean's List student and Cross Country/Track athlete at Division II Northern State University in South Dakota.  Go Wolves!
