I am currently certified as a substitute teacher in the state of California and am in the middle of completing a Master's Degree in Education pursuing a single subject credential in Social Sciences including History, SocioIogy, and Psychology. I also have a strong background in Business Planning, Finance, and Career Counseling. I have a bachelor's degree from Utah State University and an associate's degree from BYU-Idaho. My wife and I have six kids and one grandchild, so our hobbies often revolve around the activities they are involved in.

I love teaching! I seek to create meaningful experiences that inspire and motivate students. Teaching kids is fulfilling because I get to witness their curiosity, creativity, and growth firsthand. It's rewarding to play a role in shaping their minds and helping them develop the skills they need to succeed in life.

Teaching world history is a passion of mine! By diving into world history, you're not just reading about the past; you're exploring the story of humanity itself, full of drama, creativity, and adventure!
