About Me

I can look back to where I came from,  knowing that my past experience brought me to High Tech all the way from Texas.  The Project-Based Learning environment and the freedom to create and learn in a variety of ways drew me to San Diego.  In Texas (El Paso) I worked as an educator for 10 years both as math teacher, administrator, coach, and most satisfying, a Director of Outdoor Education.  I love the active learning that the outdoors brings to the classroom and it is the same in a High Tech classroom.  I am going on my 8th year at High Tech and have loved every minute of it.  I started teaching at one of the middle schools, High Tech Middle Media Arts, helping to open that school.  In 2012, I came down to Chula Vista to open this school plus it was a bonus as I live in this community. I love teaching math and most of all, making it fun, applicable to my students.

I love being active and hanging out with my family and friends.  The love of my life , Julie, has given me two beautiful children: Gavin, 11 and Bella, 7.  Together we travel, play at the beach, and stay busy doing all sorts of things.  When I am not teaching, you might find me playing golf, surfing, hiking, fishing with my son or even doing something crazy like skydiving, camping, P90Xing or mountain biking.
