Who am I?

I am a multi-subject, fourth-grade elementary teacher who enjoys writing, strategy boardgames, computer gaming, and horsing around with my three boys (ages 15, 13, and 6). My background is in earthsciences, education, and web design. I hold a bachelor's degree in geophysics from the University of Arizona and a master's degree in education from Texas A&M University. My wife also teaches at West Creek Academy, as a kindergarten teacher.
