Here is my cute dog, Dakota.


I teach Social Studies here at Longfellow Alternative High School.  Before coming to Longfellow I taught for five years at Menlo Park Academy.  I currently teach Government, World History, US History and a new Ethnic Studies class.  I love working in alternative education because it allows me to really get to know all these amazing young people.  I believe that the best way to change the world is to understand how got to be the way it is.  It is for that reason that I love teaching history.  

In my free time I am mostly trying to stay active since my favorite hobbies usually have me sitting on a couch.  These are reading comic books and playing video games.  I am also a news-junkie who has a slightly unhealthy love of politics.  Luckily, I do get outside to ride my bike and even complete an annual 400 mile ride across the great state of Iowa (I'm a University of Iowa graduate.)  If you have any questions or need to contact me please email at
