ATTACHMENTS:Contact me: You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm at school at 6:45 every morning, and for 20 minutes after school each day. (We have staff meetings after school on Tuesdays, so that is not the best afternoon time to meet).
My goal is to bring a slice of the outside world to my students, and help them move forward in their educational advancement. In almost three decades of working in Education, I have taught in Africa and Central America before coming to Glencoe. This school has a great staff, students who are generally self-motivated to learn, and many supportive parents concerned with student progress and achievement. I taught 16 years in 4th grade, moved up to 5th grade this past year with a large bubble of students, and now I'm back in 4th grade.
I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching degree from Willamette University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from OSU. I enjoy reading, music (guitar, piano and drums) and writing. I have written and published a fantasy trilogy (The Tarra Tales), which can be found in our school library. My wife is an elementary principal in the North Clackamas School District, and we have three children: 2 in college, and 1 going to Franklin HS.
