I am so excited to be a 3rd Grade Teacher at Ryland Heights!! I am 51 years old and this will be my 25th year in education. This is my fourth year at Ryland, having spent 8 years at the district office and 13 years in Boone County. I am happily married to wife, Penny, who teaches Kindergarten in Covington. We have 2 beautiful daughters who are in 5th and 9th grades in Boone County.
My Teaching Philosophy
I believe students deserve a 21st Century education in a technology-enriched classroom. To that end we will be using technology to enhance learning in the classroom and to give students an opportunity to demonstrate their learning in a whole new way. Students also benefit from a trusting environment where they are encouraged to grow and learn.
