I have been in education for the past 13 years. In 2002, I started my teaching career at Strasburg Jr./Sr. High School, teaching 7th and 8th grade social studies. When Hemphill Middle School opened in 2007, I taught Social Studies and was Dean of Students. Three years later I took over as Principal of Hemphill Middle School. In 2014, I returned to the classroom to teach social studies at East Middle School in Aurora. During my years in education I have been involved in coaching various sports including football, basketball, wrestling, and track.
