I am a 25 year resident of the Verde Valley having coached or taught for 20 of those years. I married my wife Coleen here 27 years ago and am the proud father of two Mingus Graduates. My daughter Stephanie is a Scottsdale Physical Therapist and my son Michael is pursueing his PHD at Ohio State. Coleen is the manager of the Verde Valley Fairgrounds.

This is my second year here at Mingus. I have moved from Earth Science to the math department to teach Geometry. Before coming to Mingus I taught at Cottonwood Middle School and Yavapai College. I teach because each and everyday I can make a difference.
