    Hobbies & personal interests:   
    I love hiking, biking, and reading.  Also, I enjoy hanging out with my wife- Shannon, son-Tanner, dog-Junie, and cat-Crumpet.  Depending on the season, I also consider snorkeling and snowboarding delightful ways to spend the day.

    What do you enjoy most about your job?  

    My favorite part of teaching is helping kids develop the confidence to take risks so they can see mistakes as opportunities to learn and grow.
