I graduated from Calvin College in 1999 with a degree in Spanish and Physical Education. I taught at Valley Christian in Cerritos for two years and have been teaching at Ontario Christian High School since 2001. In the summer of 2011, I completed my Masters in Coaching and Athletic Administration. I teach various levels of Spanish, Christian Leadership, and Personal Finance. I also coach volleyball.
I have been married to my beautiful wife Kelli since 2004. My daughter Adalyn was born in 2009 and I thoroughly enjoy being a proud husband and father. I love to travel and have been to many different countries and almost every state in the U.S. I enjoy playing almost any sport and since I am a Cubs fan my love for watching sports is steadily declining. The only collection I pour money into is my coin collection.
I have been raised in the Christian faith and love God with all my heart. I know that Jesus is with me everywhere I go and with the help of the Holy Spirit, I know that I am never alone. I understand the importance of leading by example and look for ways to show my students how much God loves them and provides for them.
