This is my 6th year at Jefferson teaching 6th grade math, and more importantly, building relationships with the wonderful students and families we have in Pella. I am honored to work with a top notch math department, 6th grade team, and a terrific Jefferson family.
When I am not hanging out with students and colleagues, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing basketball, playing tennis, and riding my bike, and taking nature walks.
My motto: Embrace the journey.
I began teaching at Pella last year. I enjoyed teaching at the Middle School in Resources working with 7th and 8th graders. I also had the opportunity to coach boys’ basketball for the 7th grade team as an assistant to Gary Konfrst. This year I look forward to teaching 6th grade mathematics at Jefferson Intermediate. It appears that I will have a great team to work with. I like playing and watching football, basketball and tennis. I had a great summer spending time with my wife and two daughters who are going to school at Lincoln Elementary this year as first graders.
