Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I wanted American kids to comprehend more about the world and their own country or city.

I love to see people get excited about learning.  I am a lifelong learner and desire to help others become empowered to acquire a variety of skills and enjoy doing it all their lives. I also continue to believe that experiential learning is a key to personal development. 

Personal Interests

I enjoy traveling, seeing and photographing what I observe.  I usually travel with my family and visited 6 national and state parks with my wife and daughter this past summer.  I also love to blog and do a little social media, like Youtubing. 

I want to raise my children to make a better world.
