This is my 5th year at LPS, and 9th year as an educator.  I am certified to teach middle school math as well as EC-12 physical education.  In addition to being the 5th grade math teacher, I am also the head baseball coach.  I have enjoyed coaching baseball for the last 11 years!  When I am not teaching or coaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling the world, and participating in recreational sports.  I am looking forward to a very successful school year!
