I have been teaching since 1987 and I have taught at Goodrell since 1996. I teach Healthy Choices. I was born and raised on the East side of Des Moines. I went to Garton Elementary, Goodrell Middle School, and East High School. My family consists of my wife Beth and our 3 children, Hannah, Rory, and Mary Kate. When not teaching I love to be with my family, reading Irish History, or cheering on Alabama University athletics.
