This is my fifth year teaching here at the Ranch and I am looking forward to working with all of my students and their parents throughout this year.
A Little About Me
I grew up in Washington State and came to California in 1994 upon enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps. While in the Corps. I was afforded the opportunity to travel the world and interact with many different people and cultures. It was during this time that I developed a strong interest in the Middle East and U.S. interactions within the region. It was this interest that lead me to major in History with an emphasis in Middle Eastern Studies.
I have a wife and two children. My boy (Carter) and my little girl (Avery) play baseball and soccer, so when we are not here at school my wife and I are at one sports field or another. When I do have a spare minute I love to play volleyball, softball and SCUBA dive.
Cell Phone Use in Class
All Classes will be cellphone free. Our classes have a full set of Chromebooks for research therefore there is no reason for the use of personal cell phones. If a student is caught using their cell phone it will be taken immediately and they can pick it up from me after school. If the problem persists the phone will be turned over to the office followed by parent contact and a meeting. Our classrooms are for learning not for texting, facebooking, tweeting, snapchatting, and or instagramming.
