Prior to teaching middle school, I was on the elementary side, teaching 4th and 5th grade. My wife, Patti, also works for SkyView, previously as a PK and Kindergarten teacher and currently as the sub-coordinator and curriculum ISP. We have two kids named Oliver and Ellia that will be joining the school before long. We love spending time outdoors with our dogs and visiting family in our spare time. It's an honor to teach at this school, as the students, staff, and community have been wonderful throughout my time at SVA.

Biography

The 2023-2024 school year marks my 31st year in education. John C. Maxwell said, “Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” I subscribe to this claim completely. Further, I believe and fully support the vision and mission of SkyView. I serve the community alongside some of the most amazing educators in the field. I am humbled by the opportunity to lead the SkyView community in the role of Head of Schools. My educational journey led me to SkyView in 2012. I graduated from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo in 1992 with a degree in English. I continued my education at Bethany College in Scotts Valley, California, in 1994, where I completed graduate school for Educator Licensing in Leadership and Teaching and Curriculum and Instruction. I believe to my core we are educating the future to change the world. As educators, I believe we are called to meet students where they are and develop them holistically. To that end, I am committed to ensuring we prioritize the academic, emotional, social, physical, and mental development of the students in our charge.
