This is my 25th year as a teacher in the Tomball Independent School District.  I will be teaching TAP and Level Texas History.  I'm originally from NE Ohio.  I earned a Bachelor's Degree with Honors in Political Science from Ohio State University.  I also earned my Master's Degree in Social Studies Education from Ohio State.  My wife, Nicole and I enjoy traveling and hanging out with our kids.  In my free time I enjoy watching movies, working in the yard or keeping up with my three boys.  I also enjoy rooting for my favorite sports teams (Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland (Indians, Browns and Cavaliers) and Houston (Astros, Texans and Rockets)).
