Welcome to Room One at Sherwood Elementary. I am super excited to be your teacher and
work with you on achieving your learning goals; as well as, to teach you some
I have been teaching for the past 15 years and have taught all
different styles of learners and age ranges, but the most important thing I
have found is that no matter who is learning, the learning has to be fun and
exciting (as much as possible). I have a
Bachelor’s in Education with a major in Technology and a minor in Social
I am a husband and father.
My wife and I have been married for six years and we have a beautiful
daughter (Katie) who is two. We are
expecting our newest addition sometime in early December. We also have two dogs (Emma and Abby), two
rabbits (Nick and Audrey), a turtle (Garfunkel) and two fish.
When I am not teaching (or planning) I enjoy numerous
activities; reading, cooking, watching movies, and playing with my
daughter. However; there are a few other
activities I love to do, which is to be outside.
I love to ski and go camping.
Sports are of a big interest to me, as my wife has commented
on several occasions. I enjoy watching a
majority of sports from; hockey (Edmonton Oilers) to football (Miami Dolphins
and Edmonton Eskimos) to baseball (Toronto Blue Jays) and even basketball
My teaching philosophy is that I am teaching the
leaders of tomorrow and it is my job to help your prepare for the challenges
that will face you today, tomorrow, and beyond.
I believe in a mixture of traditional teaching with a dose of new
teaching (technology and gamification).
