    Faust Facts:

    I am a proud Lumberjack of Northern Arizona University! During my time at NAU I was a 4x Scholar Athlete in Track & Field (Indoor/Outdoor). When I left Flagstaff I went to ASU for Graduate School earning my Master's in Education and my AZ Teaching Certificate (English). I started coaching in 1993 and began teaching in 1997. I transferred to Mountain Ridge High School in 2017 after 20 years at Sunrise Mountain. 

    When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my wife Tracy and our 4 dogs (Max, Liadan, Daisy & Darla). I am also in the Arizona Army National Guard (enlisted in 2001) and am currently the Chief Instructor at the Regional Training Institute (RTI) and am the Senior NCO Trainer at the Officer Candidate School (OCS).
