I am a fourth year teacher at RCHS. I teach most of the Freshmen English classes, one Honors English,and one English Lab course. I am Co-Sponsor of the RCHS Sunshine Society, Junior Class, and Prom. I am excited about working in this community. I was raised in Northwest Indiana, and it is a breath of fresh air to be in Jasper County. The people in this area are so friendly and helpful, the students are great to work with, and the faculty and staff at RCHS are always there with words of advice and encouragement. I began teacher education at Ball State University and later transferred to Purdue University Calumet. I have been married for five years, and we have two daughters, 4 year old , Mikayla, and one year old, Raelyn. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, fishing, camping, and shopping.
