Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to 6th grade Math and Science. I'm excited to be your child's teacher this school year. This will be my 1st year here at Wortham Oaks Elementary and my 9th year in education as a teacher. Previously, I taught 3rd grade for 3 years at Park Village Elementary, 5th grade for 2 years in Northeast ISD and 4th and 5th grade for 3 years in Harlandale ISD. I was born and raised here in San Antonio. I attended UTSA where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies EC-6th. Before teaching, I spent 6 years in the U.S. Navy Reserves. Also, while working on my degree, I spent 5 years working in after school programs building the skills I now use today in my classroom. It was during this time of working with children I realized I wanted to pursue a career in education and become an elementary teacher.
I've been married to my lovely and amazing wife Veronica going on 10 years this November. We have 2 boys, a 5-year-old, James, and a 5-month-old, Joshua. In my free time, I enjoy catching up on movies, watching sports, cook-outs, and chill time with family.
I look forward to meeting your child this school year. I believe in enriching young minds with rich and meaningful classroom learning that connects to real-world experiences to be used in the next grade level and beyond.
