I am entering my 3rd year as a social studies teacher and varsity basketball coach at Loogootee High School.I moved to Loogootee in the spring of 2015. Prior to my arrival I served as a social studies teacher and varsity basketball coach at Covington High school (2004-2015) and in the same positions at Clinton Prairie (1994-2004). I got my start as an educator at Fountain Central High School in 1992. I have a wide range of experience as a teacher and in coaching. During my career I have taught US History (HS and MS), AP US History, Government, Economics, Sociology, World History, World Geography (HS and MS) and Leadership. I have also been a varsity basketball, track and golf coach. I've even served one season as an assistant football coach.
I enjoy the challenge of helping mentor students and athletes of all ages. I believe that as an educator I not only have the reponsibility of making sure my students undersand the required material for eqach class, but I try to make it relevant to their lives outside of the classroom.
