I met my lovely wife years ago as a teaching colleague at Mountain Ridge High School. We married in March of 2013, and these have been the best times of my life. We have four kids, Micah, Lilliana, Josiah and Eden, all quite young still.
One of the great joys of my teaching career has been serving the students of Mountain Ridge. In addition to my main role as an educator, I also coach. Ten years ago we started the Girls Badminton program on campus, and have enjoyed some great success and amazing memories.
I am a member of Copper Hills Church in West Wing, Peoria.
I also teach online for Rio Salado Community College.
