I am originally from Southern California. My wife, Christina, and my children, Phoenix and Ramsey, moved here 9 years ago and have called Meridian, Idaho our home ever since. I attended Riverside Community College in Southern California and then transferred to Humboldt State University in Northern California where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology. After that, I returned to Southern California and started teaching as I worked for my post graduate degree and teacher certification. I completed my program and earned a teaching certificate in Special Education and a Masters of Science degree in Special Education. I have maintained my highly qualified teaching certificate ever since. I recently completed my 2nd master's degree, this time it was a Master's of Science in Education Administration along with my Administration Certification. All in all, I have been in education for 15 years in a number of capacities, but I seem to always gravitate towards alternative education. I have been here at Rebound for 5 years and absolutely enjoy our students, staff, and families. I take great pride in the success of our Rebound students and hope I can be here for many years to come. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family. I am also an avid football fan, as well as a high school football coach. Football and family will always remain a passion for me.
