History and Family
Hello parents and students! I want to tell you about my personal background. I lived in Ketchikan as a child and actually attended first grade at Pt. Higgins in 1986 when our school first opened. My dad also taught at Pt. Higgins after transferring from White Cliff. In 1990, we moved to the Soldotna area where I would graduate from Skyview High School in 1998.
Hopefully you get to meet my wonderful wife Melina, who is also from the Soldotna area. We’re currently enjoying our ten year-old daughter Aliyah, seven year-old son Maxton, three year-old Adelaide Ruth, and a baby boy coming in January!
Education and Teaching Experience
I earned my teaching degree at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, Oregon. This is my fifteenth year teaching. My previous experience has been instructing for the Kenai Peninsula, Bethel, and for the Anchorage School District.
Personal Interests and Hobbies
I pastor Ketchikan Community Church. I also enjoy coaching wrestling here at Pt. Higgins beginning in January. I enjoyed sports as a student and tried to participate in just about everything.
