I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in K-12 Physical Education and Coaching. I have been teaching here at SAGE Academy ever since. My duties at SAGE include Physical Education, Health, Body Mechanics, Reading, Testing Coordinator, Transportation Coordinator and Interim Assistant Director.
I love the Ocean and if I have a long enough break from work you will find me in the water. My wife and I are both certified dive masters with several specialities including photography, and we absolutely love swimming with sharks. They are not the monsters the media makes them out to be.
Favorite quote: “Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me danger is very real but fear is a choice.”
