I am currently a special education teacher at Carson High School in Carson City, NV. Previously, I taught US Government, US History, and AP US History for 11 years, served as a technology learning strategist, and served as a dean of students prior to deciding to return to the classroom from administration. I served one year as an alternative school physical education teacher before moving from Las Vegas to Reno, NV and beginning my current position in Carson City. I am a Google Certified Educator, Level 1 & 2, a Google Certified Trainer, a Pear Deck Certified Coach, Apple Teacher (Mac & iPad), Certified Microsoft Innovative Educator, a Flipgrid Certified Educator, and have presented at numerous educational technology conferences, including EdTech Team Google for Education Summits, various CUE, Inc. affiliate events, and several school district workshops and conferences. I am married to another educator, Mary, a speech-language pathologist, who is currently attending graduate school full time at the University of Nevada, pursuing her master's in speech-language pathology. Together, we have a daughter, Elsa (8), and a son, Reed (4). And I am the author of To The Edge: Successes & Failures Through Risk-Taking, a book that inspires readers to take more risks in their lives and careers, available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
