Welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies. New to Drake, I am excited about this school year. Moving over from West Woods Elementary, I look forward to continuing to teach 6th grade students; building a working relationship with them in middle school.

On this site, you will find all the information that you will need for my class. This site will include a calendar, links, tools and documents to support Social Studies. I am looking forward to a great year filled with exploration, learning, and growth.

About Me:

A native of Colorado, I was born and raised in West Denver. I have been teaching in Jefferson County for the past 20 years. My last twelve years, I taught 6th grade at West Woods Elementary. I have two daughters, both alums of Wheat Ridge High School. My daughters graduated from colleges out of state, one in Arizona and the other New Mexico. With both daughters out on their own, my wife, Jennifer and I have adopted a wonderful rescued Golden Retriever this year. When away from school, I enjoy spending time with my family and the outdoors.
