     If I "do too much," it's because I care; My job is to challenge you, to work you, and to guide you.
    History affects us all, some more than others, and it's important to understand what happened to better understand our present, and our future. This is why I love teaching, and teaching here at Soldan. We have unique historical experiences and I try to teach my students how their experience fits into US History and US Government. I enjoy my colleagues and the support I receive from them.
    "The world keeps going, it's up to you to show up."

    This is my 7th year at Soldan, wow that flew by!
    I teach freshmen US History, junior US Government, AP Government & Politics and Dual Credit US History offered through UMSL.
    I have a B.S. in Secondary Social Studies Education from Webster University and a M.A. in History from UMSL.
    In addition, my wife and I have two wonderful, albeit rambunctious, kids: Eve is 8 and Lincoln is 5.
