This is my 21th year of teaching and my 3rd year in Tomball ISD. I started my teaching career in Spring Branch ISD in 1997 at Buffalo Creek Elementary. After 11 years in Spring Branch ISD I transferred to Spring ISD where I taught for 7 years. I worked at Meyer Elementary and at Winship Elementary while in Spring ISD. I have had a variety of teaching assignments in my career including Kindergarten, K/1 Multi-age, 2nd grade,3rd grade, 4th grade, Special Education pull-out support, and Structured Learning.
In October 2017, my wife and I will celebrate our 18th anniversary. We have two children; Nicholas - 17 years old - a Senior at Westfield High School & Stephanie - 14 years old - a Freshman at Westfield High School - both in Spring ISD.
Our family stays very busy between sports for the kids: Nicholas - golf and swimming & Stephanie - select/travel softball and school softball. In addition to teaching CTE classes at Westfield High School my wife is also the Westfield Girl's Varsity Softball Coach.
