How long have you been working in education?

I have been working in education since 2002.

In what areas?

I have worked as an outdoor educator and administrator for NOLS and have taught in the classroom in elementary, middle, high school and college.

How long at JHCS?

This is my first year at JHCS. 

What do you do outside working at JHCS?

I like to ski, bike, travel and spend time with my wife Olivia and dog Peter. 

What is your most rewarding part of the day at JHCS?

Any time we get to have fun while learning is a rewarding part of my day. I also enjoy working with students in small groups. 

What drew you to the field of education?

That is a tough question! I think in part it was an interest in showing and sharing experiences and material with students. My favorite part of education is getting to know students as people as well as learners.
