I want to tell you a little bit about me.  I live in Gladstone, MO.  I know, I know.  It's quite a drive, but I couldn't be happier that I landed at Wolf Creek with such amazing teachers, administrators, students, and parents.  What a blessing.  I graduated in 2016 from Missouri Western State University where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education and Health.  I've been married for five years to my amazing wife, Abbey.  We have two beautiful daughters Emma (3) and Grace (1).  

 As a Physical Education teacher I have three goals.  Goal one is to keep my students safe.  Unfortunately, bumps and bruises sometimes happen, but I do my best to limit any unnecessary risk to the best of my ability.  Goal two is to teach your students a skill, and my final goal is to foster a lifelong love of physical activity.   

In my classroom I will adapt lessons to utilize the abilities of all students, and my goal with every lesson is to make sure all students achieve some form of success. My students will learn physical, cognitive, and social skills.  My students will also learn accountability and leadership skills, and will fill comfortable socializing and interacting with a wide range of classmates.  Physical Education should be a fun and safe environment for students to acquire new skills that lead to a lifelong love of physical activity.
