Hi. Welcome to English with me.  I've been here at North Valley for about as long as anyone, but teaching English is still just as exciting to me as it was when I started. This year, I'm working on updating the English II curriculum to meet the new Proficiency-based Learning expectations. This gives me the opportunity to revisit a curriculum I've been using for years with fresh eyes, something I'm really looking forward to.

In addition to teaching, I coach both cross
country and forensics. Our boy's cross country team was second  at the OSAA State meet this year, and our speech and debate team is a two-time defending OSAA State champion.

In case you're curious, I have a wife and two daughters, both freshmen (one in high school and one in college). And two dogs, and a cat, and a lizard, and chickens. Guess that's about it. Bye now. Go read something.
