Degrees and Certifications:
Hello 8th grade students and families!
This is my first year teaching at Busch Middle School and I'm so excited to be here!
For the last two years I've been teaching High School English at Cleveland Naval Academy
Now I'm ready to share my love of books by teaching 8th grade reading
We are going to be spending a lot of time reading and sharing our thoughts with each other on what we are reading
You will also have a lot of time every week to read a book of your choice in class
When I'm not working I spend time with my wife (who is also a teacher) and our dog (we only have 1 right now)
We like to play in the yard or go to the park
When we are laying around we like to watch sci-fi and fantasy movies and anything about true crime
I graduated from Lindenwood University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2018
Then continued my education at UMSL where I earned a Master's Degree in Education in 2021
I can't wait to get to know each and every one of you and discover what kind of books you love to read
If you don't know what you like to read, don't worry, we'll do that together in class and find something that you won't be able to put down!
Let's all have an amazing year!
