I have been a member of CTEA for the past 4 years. The thing I love about our organization is the camaraderie and sense of community. I feel we are a great group of educators and professionals that truly care for students by incorporating CTE in our classrooms.
I have been teaching Technology and Engineering for the past 12 years at Mountain Vista High School. Previously 5 years at Heritage High School, where I taught Business, ACE and Computers as well as served as the TSA Co-Sponsor. I serve as the Department Chair of the Technology, Engineering and Computer Sciences at MVHS and had the opportunity to incorporate Solidworks, CNC Machining and Additive Manufacturing within our courses while instituting and growing our Engineering program. I also had the privilege to start MVHS’s first TSA Chapter and have grown the chapters to over 100 members.
When not teaching, I enjoy DIY projects at home, coaching my kids’ lacrosse and football teams, and being with my amazing family: wife Katie (Math Teacher at MVHS, TSA Co-Sponsor), son Sean (11) and daughter Erin (8).
