Mission Statement

My mission as a teacher is to successfully teach as much educational information as I can to each one of my students. This will enable them to attain many of their projected goals when they are adults.  My main goals are to consistently teach students to be as independent as possible, be organized and structured when working, always show respect to everyone, treat all students and people fairly, and have good communication between my students, their parents, and all other teachers and district employees.


My Interests

I have a lot of interests/hobbies in my life since life is so full of different aspects. Some of my regular interests are:  enjoying leisure and quality time with my family and friends, fishing and hunting with my 2 girls (China and Cynbad), BBQing/cooking, when finding the time (watching the TV shows such as Survivors, Myth Busters, History Channel, Discovery Channel), learning new technology skills for a computer/IPad and trying to learn at least 2 new facts or knowledge a day from someone else. My main goal is to live my life in happy and positive relationships with my family, friends, and co-workers.
