Hello Holy Rosary Families,
This September marks my fourth year at Holy Rosary School. I am the 6B homeroom teacher. I will also be teaching 6th grade math and religion, as well as 5th grade language arts and reading. Some of my greatest memories were from my own experiences as a student at Holy Rosary, many of which inspired me to pursue a career in education. I enter this new role with 8 years of classroom experience teaching language arts. The majority of this was in public middle schools in Auburn and Burien. Returning to this faith-based community is truly exciting, and I can’t wait to work with you all in the coming years.
A little about me: My wife and I live in the Burien area. We are both teachers, and share a passion for education. We love dogs, and currently have a  pit bull-staffordshire mix. We we also spend time in nature, and like to camp, especially on the ocean. I’m also a musician, and like to perform live music in my free time. My students will learn that music is a big part of my life, and I like to bring it into the classroom when I can.
As an educator, I believe it is my calling and responsibility to help children navigate the world with heart and critical thinking. It is my duty to help build literacy skills to provide students with the tools they need to be successful in life, but personal success isn’t everything. I want students to learn and practice empathy in the classroom, so we can build a strong and loving community. I look forward to providing students with a fulfilling learning experience this year.
