I have taught at Dulles High School since 2002. I previously taught at Clements High School, and before that I lived in Montana (born and raised). I received a Masters Degree in Education from Montana State University-Billings in 2001. I completed my undergraduate work at Utah State University (GO BIG BLUE!), earning a Bachelor of Science in History, in 1995. I have two children in middle school David and Grace. We have three cats, Teddy, Bear, and Cally. My hobbies include fly-fishing, backpacking and reading about U.S. History. In 2011 I was part of the FBISD/Rice University Teaching American History program. During the summer of 2011 I spent two weeks taking classes at Rice University, and then traveled through Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia looking at mostly Civil War sites. It was really cool!
