I have had the pleasure of teaching and coaching at Thornapple Kellogg since 1987. As part of the special education department, we provide instructional and support services for a wide range of students. It is our goal to help all students reach their full potential and to provide transition services to help them become successful adults. I received both a Bachelor's and Master's Degree from GVSU. My wife Donna and I have two daughters, Kallie and Katie. My hobbies revolve around sports - playing watching, attending games and collecting memorabilia.
