In sharing my qualifications and interests, I hope to provide you with tremendous confidence in my abilities to not only establish a strong rapport with you, but to also be an exceptional teacher in arithmetic, elementary math, middle school math, and pre-algebra!
I currently have seven years of experience teaching upper elementary education. The last two years of my career were spent in Hong Kong at an international Christian school. During this time, I learned a lot about how to connect with a wide variety of students and learning styles. In 2007, I received my Bachelor's in Elementary Education at Missouri Western State University and, in 2010, I completed my Master's in Elementary Administration at William Woods University.
I consider myself to be a creative individual, with a variety of interests including family, outdoors, and music. Almost every Sunday, my wife, my daughter, and I go to my parents' house to have lunch and spend time with my family. When I lived in Hong Kong, this was something that I really missed a lot! My interest in music is rooted in the fact that I was in band all through school and college. I can play the Euphonium, a little piano, guitar, harmonica, and the mandolin. And if you are wondering what kinds of things I like to do outdoors, it would most definitely be hiking and fishing! In fact, I almost wish I could be outdoors catching some fish right now!
