Bethel English Content Coach
I started teaching in January 1992 after graduating from Eastern Washington University. I went on to acquire my Master’s Degree in 1995 while working at an elementary school where I helped build a computer lab from the ground up. I taught fifth and six grade until 2000 when I became a stay-at-home dad. It was during this time that I discovered my passion for photography. I enjoy going outside and capturing nature at its finest. For a few years, my career was a challenge. I thought that I might become an electrician as a change of pace. However, that was short lived, and I became an infant photographer until accepting the position of English Content Coach at Acceleration Academies. The best part of working at Acceleration Academy is the atmosphere that we have here and being able to work with Graduation Candidates one on one and help them achieve their goals one step at a time.
Favorite or most significant year in school and why:
11th grade PE no longer required. Took weight lifting and lost weight etc
The Hobbit. My dad read it when I was young and really spurred my love of creating stories etc
Chicken especially oven fried chicken like mom makes
