I have been teaching at Goodrell since 1989 and have loved every minute of it. To me, science is a verb not a noun. I believe kids should be actively engaged in class and I hope to provide that for your child. I love to be outdoors either hunting, fishing, bbq’in, or camping. I have triplets that were born in 1996 and a wonderful wife who retired from DMPS. I look forward to a great experience with your son or daughter!!
I have been a math teacher for the Des Moines Public Schools since I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 1988. Most of those years have been at Goodrell Middle School. I enjoy time with my family, baking, walking and gardening.
