I am a Colorado native and very proud of it. I was a “computer geek” before going back to college and earning my bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Elementary Education from Metropolitan State University of Denver. I am currently attending the University of Denver where I am working on a master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. This year I am excited to take on the opportunity to be STEM Lab's Social Emotinal Learning Specialist. This role will allow me to support teachers and scholars in the classroom both socially and academically. I am a diehard Broncos fan and have had season tickets in my family for more than 35 years. During the summer, I enjoy backyard BBQs with my family and friends, camping and playing golf. My wife, Stefanie, who is also an Adams 12 teacher, and I have two daughters, 14-year-old Mia and 5-year-old Preslee. I look forwrd to making even more connections with STEM Lab's families and commuity this school year.
