Degrees and Certifications:
My wife Sunni and I returned to Bloomington in December 2013. Since Bloomington is the place where we wanted to put down roots, I wanted to find an opportunity where I could immerse myself in community, and I found it at TPS. Their values are reflected in my personal mission as an educator. Personally, my mission is to be able to support and maintain educational programs and learning environments that will not only serve the needs of TPS, but will also serve to inspire and challenge students in many different capacities. I believe that it is vital for an educational mentor to help students consider many different directions in which they could grow personally as well as make positive contributions to their communities as capable leaders. When I’m not working with students I could be found on a trail, in a tree or playing with my dog Bosco.
