Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to start the 2020-2021 school year! This year will be a year that brings us all many new challenges in education. Facing these challenges with a positivie spirit and the attitude that this will be a great year, is what I am embracing. I have enjoyed teaching at the elementary level for 26 years. Making sure that students are challenged, excited, and feel safe and respected each day, are my most important goals as a professional educator. I am an Idaho History Specialist for our district. Each year I am in charge of putting over 3,000 students through over 30 hands on history stations at our annual Rendezvous in May. I feel very privileged to be starting my 30th year with the West Ada School District, and starting my fourth year as part of the amazing staff at Heritage Middle School. I am a graduate of Boise State University and have 72 graduate level course credits past my BA. My wife and I have been blessed with three daughters. My wife, Julie Summers, is also a sixth grade teacher here at Heritage, she teaches math. My personal hobbies are golf and coin collecting. I am more excited than ever to continue to grow professionally as I continue on with a career that I love!
