I am thrilled to be joining the Gateway community as Fire Instructor in the SLPS Fire and EMS Academy!  Teaching is my third career, following video production and vintage truck restorations.  I am currently a volunteer fire fighter with the French Village Fire Department in Fairview Heights, Illinois.  I am a Nationally-Registered EMT, and hold certifications in Fire Fighter I&II, Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations, Fire Instructor I,and NFPA1403. 

I am passionate about teaching in Career and Technical Education, and helping students get a successful start in the career of their choice.  It’s fun to see the students learn to use their hands and tools to master fire fighting skills.

I also enjoy introducing Juniors to Medical Terminology, which gives them a basis for understanding anatomy and body systems, and being able to professionally discuss medical issues.

My son will graduate this year from University of Michigan with a degree in Economics.  My daughter will graduate Clayton High-School, and will be attending Loyola University in the fall.  I live in Clayton with my wife Lois, and my dog Savannah.
