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, and Fire Instructor I.
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 and daughter are rising seniors in college and high-school, respectively. I live in Clayton with my wife Lois, and my dog Savannah.
