Hello! I am completely excited to teach this year no matter whether it be remotely, in a hybrid teaching format, or in person. We got this and it will be great!
A little about me. I have done immersion programs in Egypt and Middlebury for Arabic and spent two years in Peru serving my church. Obviously I love languages and cultures from all over the world. My travels include visits to the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, Peru, Bolivia, Italy, and the Vatican.
I have been here at Renaissance since it's first inception started hitting the ground. It has been a privilage to offer these two languages here in this area. I love the cultures and people behind them and find much joy in sharing them with our students. Here at Reniaissance, I have served both sides of the school offerings by teaching IB and Concurrent Credit Arabic as well as Spanish.
Out side of work, I am a family man by heart and love my wife and kids completely. They are my pride and joy who and have been well learned in the Jedi arts (yes, Star Wars is the greatest!). Lately, country music from the 90's have been my vibe. Love that genre.
I look forward to helping in any way to prepare our students for any challenge. My philosophy is, let's be happy. If you are not happy, then let's go find it together.
