We acknowledge that Glencoe Elementary sits upon traditional land of the Clackamas, Cowlitz, Chinook and other tribes, some of which are now in the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde. We want to respect and honor them by taking care of this land.
* Remind your child to keep recording their minutes read each day. Read and sign your newsletter, which is due each Friday.
* Remember to bring in a water bottle every day--we all need to stay hydrated.
* Help your child remember to bring in their Chromebook every day, as we're using them now on a regular basis.

My goal is to bring a slice of the outside world to my students, and help them advance their educational pathway. With more than three decades working in Education, I've taught in Minnesota, Oregon, Africa and Central America before coming to Glencoe. This school has a great staff, students who are generally self-motivated to learn, and so many supportive parents concerned with student progress and achievement. I've spent over two decades as a 4th grade teacher at Glencoe..
I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching degree from Willamette University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from OSU. I enjoy reading, playing music (guitar, piano and drums) and writing. I have published a fantasy trilogy (The Tarra Tales), which can be found in our school library. My wife is an area director for North Clackamas School District, and we have three children: son Kyle is a university professor in Poughkeepsie, NY; Janet is enjoying the artist life in NYC; and Bryan is a junior at U. of O.
