Degrees and Certifications:
This is my seventeenth year with the Fullerton School District including time as an aide. My educational background is in Psychology (BA, CSUF) and Education (MS Ed, Special Education – CSUF). I hold a Clear Mild Moderate Education Specialist Instructional Credential.
I share my personal life with my wife Catie, who was also a Rolling Hills teacher but now serves at the district. Together, we have three girls; two former and one current roadrunner. In my free time I enjoy mountain biking, backpacking, reading and fishing: but most of all, baseball. During summer, I do field work in Geology for CSUF and recently co-authored a published article in a peer reviewed journal!
Our academic intervention programs have been steady the last few years. We have iReady, to provide diagnostics and assessments throughout the year. We use the core GoMath program in addition to TouchMath intervention programs. ELA programs include core Wonders as well as Sonday, Signs for Sounds and Flex interventions. Our Science curriculum will be supplemented though the use of Mystery Science, a digital multimedia platform.
