Teacher, 8th Grade World Geography
I was born and raised in Michigan and as a result have been deeply rooted as a U of M fan (Go Blue!). I am entering my 14th year in education. I am married to Alysha and we have four kids (Ethan-7, Emersyn-5, Eleanor-4, Ewan-2). I have a three-year-old German Shepherd named Maize (Go Blue)! My favorite books are the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, followed by the Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. My favorite TV show is Parks and Rec. My favorite movie is the Count of Monte Cristo, but I love to watch movies in general, while enjoying popcorn and movie snacks. Marvel is better than DC, and I am team CAPTAIN all the way. My favorite Marvel movies are Thor Ragnarok and the Guardians of the Galaxy (I & II). I am a huge fan of comedy and love the whits of Jim Gaffigan and Nate Bargatze and I have aspirations to do my very first stand up comedy bit by the end of 2021. My favorite thing on Netflix is TURN, Washington’s Spies and Stranger Things. I am a barista on the side and love ALL things coffee. My favorite season is fall because….PUMPKIN…and the cooler weather encourages hoodies and flannels. I love to cook and bake breads. I enjoy almost every sport and am passionate about the Chicago Bears (I worked for them for six summers), Washington Capitals, Detroit Tigers, Liverpool F.C., and USA Soccer. I am a fantasy football fanatic. I enjoy hiking, camping, backpacking, and drinking ice cold water working its way down a mountain. I enjoy working out by lifting weights, swimming, and riding bikes. My favorite historical time period is during the American Revolution and my favorite quote is “What we obtain to cheap, we esteem to lightly, it is dearness only that gives everything its value” -Thomas Paine, The American Crisis.
