Teaching Experience:

Norris High School (2017-Current)  

After graduating from Doane University I have been teaching and coaching at Norris. This is my sixth year with Norris and I currently teach both sophomore-level classes in AP Modern World History and Global Perspectives. In my spare time, I love watching and participating in all types of sports and outdoor activities. I love competing and can make anything into a game. I also enjoy watching movies, hanging out with my family, traveling to new places, and trying new foods (hit me up with any great food recommendations). I love supporting all things Norris and seeing everything that goes on outside of the classroom. My wife Payton and I have two children a daughter named Jaeda and a son named Banks, we also have a dog named Theo. 

Can't wait for another great school year!
