Welcome!  I began teaching high school in 1999 (and came to Capac in 2002).  Some courses I have taught include French I, II, III, IV, AP French, AP European History, AP World History, and American History & Geography.  I have a teaching major in history, teaching minor in French (my mom's parents were from Montreal, Canada), and I am working on an additional teaching major in social studies.  I have been married to my wife (Nancy) since 2003.  We have one son (Ben) who was born in 2005.  In my leisure time, I like to read, go to the movies, and travel.  On the right, you will find my daily schedule and contact information.  I update grades on Zangle pretty much every school day.  Please feel free to call or email me at anytime!
