 Teacher Bio

TEACHING BACKGROUND:
This will be my 14th year of teaching at Air Academy. Before that, I taught 6th and 7th graders for four years at Eagleview Middle School.
 
In addition to teaching I have also been both the head coach and an assistant coach for the Air Academy Hockey Team for 20 years.
​​ ​
BEFORE TEACHING:
I grew up in Colorado Springs and attended both Air Academy Junior High and Air Academy High School (graduating class of 1982).

I attended UCCS and graduated with a degree in Accounting.  I then received my MBA from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. 

From there, I worked for the oil company CONOCO for almost 11 years. During those years, I spent time in Ponca City, Oklahoma, Midland, Texas and Houston, Texas.  Along the way I made stops in New Orleans and Farmington, NM. I left CONOCO, received my Teaching Certificate from UCCS, completed my student teaching at Widefield High School, began coaching Air Academy Hockey, then went to work at Eagleview.
