About Me

I am super excited to be back teaching grade 5 here at Annie L. Gaetz Elementary School! This will be my 2nd year with Red Deer Public Schools, after teaching for 19 years in the Chinooks Edge School Division. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of subject areas to students ranging from K -12. 

When I’m not teaching, I enjoy coaching kids, photography, motorcycles, kayaking, reffing basketball, skiing, being outdoors and spending time with my wife and my two daughters.  Both of my daughters attend Red Deer Public Schools and are actively involved in many different sports. This means that I can also often be found cheering them on at a local gymnasium.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.  Also, please take a moment to check our classroom blog to see a few of the things that our class has been doing lately.
