Welcome to 7th grade Science at Woodward Middle School!
You can find all class information on my Google Classroom as well on the 7A Week at a Glance. Your student can give you access to Google Classroom.
I'm excited to be entering my 19th year at Woodward Middle School (22nd overall)! As I tell my students, I wouldn't stick around this long if I didn't love it here! I have taught just about everything in my career, but have been focussed on my passion, science, for the past 16 years. We focus on the Earth sciences in 7th grade and I can't think of a better place to study geology than Washington State with our volcanoes and seismic activity!
Along with teaching, I am also a basketball coach. I was the head boys coach at Bainbridge High School for 11 years and I was also one of the founders of ROOTS Basketball, the youth program on the island. I took over as the head coach at North Kitsap HS 6 years ago and had the honor to coach the program to it's first State Championship in school history in 2020...5 days before all schools were shut down because of COVID-19.
I reside in Kingston with my wife Molly, and kids Emma (senior) and Cade (freshman) along with our lab Gus and a bunch of chickens and fish.
