I am so proud to be a new part of the GMS family this school year. Gardner has a spectacular group of staff, parents, and students.
I started my teaching career as a Biology teacher at Centennial High School in Compton. After one year there, I got hired at Vail Ranch Middle School and taught 8th grade Science for 11 years. Although I will miss the classroom, I am extremely excited to start this new chapter in my career.
I look forward to building new relationships and supporting students in whatever way I can. While in middle school, students will gain tools, knowledge, and maturity that will propel you to success in the future. I believe that it is my role to do whatever I can to make their middle school experience a fulfilling and rewarding one.
I have a wonderful family. My wife is a middle school teacher in the district and we have 3 wonderful children. Some of my favorite hobbies are golfing, snowboarding, and watching football. Please introduce yourself when you see me around campus. I would love to talk with you about any questions or concerns you may have. I know it is going to be a fantastic year!
