Education has always been a very special part of my life since I was a little boy. I grew up in the Fountain Valley School District and went to elementary school at Newland Elementary. I am so excited to be BACK at Newland and teaching 2nd grade for the 2019-20 school year. I have been teaching since 2010. I have taught many different grade levels at many different schools in this district. I graduated from UC Riverside with a BA in Liberal Studies and Education. I received my multiple subject teaching credential from Long Beach State. I live in Newport Beach with my puppy Snowflake Bentley. When I am not at school, you can find me on the soccer field, at the beach, or taking Bentley to the dog park.
