Degrees and Certifications:
Though born in Boston and raised in Minneapolis, I have lived in San Diego since 1991. I was educated at UCSD, where Art History and Education were my foci. I have been teaching at Del Mar Heights School since 2001. I live in San Diego with my wife, Amy, who is also a teacher, my son Grant, my daughter Lauren, and my dog, Sisi. I enjoy surfing, soccer (Tottenham Hotspur are my team), Baseball (Viva Los Padres!), and great books and films. I also coach soccer, write, and play music regularly.
My classroom is a caring and rich environment where children can immerse themselves in learning. Students learn to work autonomously and cooperatively on assignments that challenge them appropriately. Students learn that reading and writing can be fun, preparing them for a lifetime of enrichment and enjoyment.
