Hola Toros!

I am one of the PE teachers here at Union Park School. 

Prior to being a PE teacher at Union Park, I had been an Adapted PE Teacher in the district. I’m excited get moving again at Union Park this school year!

I am originally from St. Louis, MO. I moved to Phoenix, AZ in 2013. I taught K-8 PE at a charter school before becoming an Adapted PE Teacher for DVUSD. I love all sports, but my favorite sport is soccer. I have played the game since I was 5, played in college all 4 years, and further coached club, high school, and collegiately. I have worked closely over the years with Special Olympics since becoming a member of the DVUSD family. Outside of work, I have a great family which consists of my wife (Annie), my son (Milo), and our little dog (Fuzzy). In my spare time I like spending time with my family and friends, building things, arts and crafts, and of course, anything sports related.

Go Toros!
