Welcome to my Teacher Page. I teach Government and American/Arizona History at Desert Ridge High School.

Government is what is commonly referred to by other schools as Civics class. The students learn the role they play in our country as well as the role that government plays in their lives as well as the importance of civic responsibility. 

American/Arizona history is a comprehensive examination of our country's past from the first settlers in North America through the events of September 11th, 2001. They also, throughout the year, learn the important role Arizona has played in that history.

About Me

I grew up in northeast Wisconsin and went to college at a small college in Iowa, Wartburg College. I moved to the west side of Phoenix (Glendale) in December of 1999. I moved to the east valley in 2004 and have been teaching at Desert Ridge ever since. 
I coach football and have coached throws in track in the past. I've been married to my wife, Lisa, since March of 2005 and we have been blessed with two boys, Ben and Sam. We live in Mesa and we are lucky to have my parents as Snow Birds during the winter months. My older brother lives in Gilbert and my younger brother lives outside of Denver, Colorado.
