Personal Information

Wow, that was fast.  How is this school year already over?  I would like to thank everyone for a great year, and hope you have an exciting and somewhat relaxing summer break. If you get a chance, get outside and make some observations, use some of the skills that you learned, ask questions, and enjoy the outdoors.  (Climb a mountain!)

I also want to remind you that there will be a total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, 2017.  This is actually the first day of school for us.  We are not in the zone of totality.  You would have to drop down into Nebraska, around Lincoln, in order to see the total solar eclipse.  I am sure you will hear more about this as the summer rolls around.  You won't hear me say this very often, but I wish we could spend the first day of school, going to Nebraska to watch this event.

Enjoy your summer!   They go by way to quick.  Look forward to seeing you in August.

I am an avid outdoor enthusiast. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado, and I love the great outdoors. I enjoy; camping, hiking, climbing 14'ers, hunting, looking for rocks and minerals, biking, and spending time with my family. We take at least one trip to Colorado every year to see family and friends, and to "see" the mountains. I also enjoy sports. I have coached many sports in the past and I am involved with many of the youth programs.
I look forward to working with your son/daughter throughout the year. Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to talk. You can contact me at school, or at home. Let's make this a great year.
