I do not assign homework for homework’s sake. Students are given class time to complete assignments, but will occasionally have to complete a project on their own time. However, if they use class time wisely, the amount of homework should be minimal. Also, before every test, students will have some type of study materials to use to prepare for tests. These study materials may be notes, reviews, study guides, or textbook sections.  

Family (Optional)

I have been married for 38 years and have 4 children and a granddaughter.


Other Interests/Hobbies

I love sports! Baseball, softball, volleyball, and basketball are my favorites. I love to watch the Cardinals play. I also spending time with my family. Sunday dinners are a treat.
Memorable Events
My wedding, birth of my children, accomplishments of my children, and special “teaching” memories, which always include special students, rate as memorable events for me.
