I began my teaching career coaching football and teaching art to middle school students in Ohio. After a few years my wife and I moved to Texas and I began teaching art at the high school level. Art courses I've taught include Art 1, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Ceramics, Black & White Photography, Digital Photography, AP Drawing, AP 2D Art, AP 3D Art, and AP Art History. I have served on a variety of committees including technology and curriculum, was a mentor teacher to students and student teachers, and a club advisor. I served on a committee for one of the top ranking arts festivals in the country, started three nonprofit charities, and served as a department chair for an art department that included 7 art teachers and over 500 art students. In 2014 we returned to Ohio. We are thankful to be closer to family and friends and raise our children near them.
I am very excited to begin my 3rd year at Tippecanoe High School! I will teach Homebuilding I & Homebuilding II each semester. This fall we will continue working on the 2nd Tipp tiny House and start working on the 3rd Tipp Tiny House. I look forward to working with students and helping them reach their goals!
