Personal Biography
In 2012, we moved to New England from Phoenix, Arizona, to be with our son (John) and our daughter-in-law (Karine) who were starting a family. Our daughter (Tammy) moved with us along with our grandchildren (Jayden and Caitlyn). I have been married to my wife (Pam) for 40 years.

Educational Philosophy
My goal for students is that they become lifelong learners who follow and are committed to the Lord. My teaching emphasizes problem solving, thinking, application, and serving. Character development is woven into all aspects of the curriculum. In our classroom there is hard work, laughter, discipline, responsibility, and teamwork. A Biblical worldview is emphasized daily and integrated into all that we do. Science and historical field trips augment classroom learning.
