Liberty Middle School
Climate and Culture TOSA, Leadership and ELA/SS Teacher
Vancouver, Washington
I am in my 7th year of education having taught in Honduras at an international high school for two years and spending the last five years at Liberty Middle School in Camas, WA. I have taught a technology class, Model United Nations, U.S. History, and AP U.S. Government but currently I teach 6th grade language arts and social studies, as well as 6th and 8th grade leadership. I have the luxury of being a TOSA this year as well, focusing on the climate and culture of the school. On top of teaching, I have coached basketball, track, Knowledge Bowl, MUN, and various intramurals, as I believe it is important to work with students outside the classroom. My loving wife of nearly 12 years and two amazing daughters are my guiding force in life, always supporting me in my efforts to improve myself and my understanding of all things education. I am a CharacterStrong advocate and presenter and I strive to make education about the whole child.
