Educational Experience
20th year with Aquinas Catholic Schools

It's amazing to me that this will be my 20th year of teaching social studies and coaching football at Aquinas High School.  Every year has been great.  I especially like to teach at Aquinas because I can really get to know the students, and we can have interesting conversations related to class and current events.  The staff and families of ACS are like one, big supportive family.  My wife of 18 years, Kim, and I have two daughters, who attend Aquinas High School and Middle School.  Outside of school I like to hunt and fish, and as a family, we enjoy biking and hiking.
