This is my thirty-first year teaching, all in the Sebastopol Union School District. I have taught all grades from 2nd - 5th self-contained, the 3-4-5 Open Alternative Program, 6th grade Humanities, and 5th grade P.E./Health. I've taught at Park Side, Pine Crest, and Brook Haven campuses.
I live in Sebastopol with my wife who is also a teacher. We have four adult daughters between us, and two beautiful young grandchildren. We host two adopted orphan cats and several chickens.
Before teaching, I practiced Landscape Architecture for several years. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a BLA, and Sonoma State University with a Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential.
