Office Hours - Tuesdays at 3:30

I have been a teacher at Vineland Middle School since 2002.  I teach all grade levels.  Over the years, I have been a Math Bowl coach, a volleyball coach, a basketball coach and a track coach.  I love all sports and try to be involved in the many activities that our school offers. 

I grew up here in Vineland and attended Vineland Elementary, Vineland Middle School and Pueblo County High.  I have a son (T.J.) and a daughter (Bailey) who are now adults themselves. They were both students at VMS and I am proud to say they both received a great education here.

I graduated from Colorado State University - Fort Collins with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics.   I worked for ten years in the Denver area as a Software Engineer for Geodynamics Corporation and Hughes Aircraft Company. I later received my Teaching Certificate from Colorado State University - Pueblo and my Master's Degree from Adams State University.  I continue working to improve my teaching skills by taking classes whenever possible.
