Degrees and Certifications:
I started teaching social studies for the Outlook Academy in 2009. Many of our students have never found success in the educational system, until they came to Outlook. Helping them to become successful is what I enjoy most about my job. It is a unique challenge and is never routine or boring. I hope to be part of this program for many years to come.
Prior to teaching at the Outlook Academy (which includes the Youth Home facilities in Allegan County) I taught sixth grade reading in Homestead, Florida. I also taught anthropology at Kellogg Community College.
My wife, Denese, and I enjoy traveling, boating, music, gardening, and spending time with our grandchildren and family.
