I am excited to be a part of the Wildcat family as the Assistant Principal here at Alta Vista. This community is second to none and provides an educational experience that addresses the needs of the whole child. I honored to be a part of a school where students are challenged and engaged in the classroom by our amazing teachers and are connected to their school through our various enrichment opportunities.I am a life-long learner who believes that learning is continual and doesn’t stop at the doors of the school.
Prior to joining Alta Vista, I was a teacher at Adams Middle School for six years; five years as a social science teacher and one year as the Teacher on Special Assignment/Title I Coordinator. I received my bachelor’s degree in sociology from UC Santa Barbara while being a student-athlete on the baseball team. I received my master’s degree in educational administration from Long Beach State University and someday would like to pursue my doctorate degree in education!
When I am not at work, you will find me at Dodgers games, golfing, running around with my two sons, and spending time with my amazing wife, Katie.
