Welcome to my own little sounding board!

I’m a married 40 something dad of two just trying to figure my way around here.  My teaching career has taken me from Minnesota to Alaska then Missouri and finally Iowa.  I’ve taught all levels K-12 at some point or another, and find that the middle grades are my “home”.  Yes, apparently I’m a glutton for punishment if you know middle school students, but yet, I truly enjoy teaching them.


Now,  if you’ve found the answers to teaching, parenting, or life, please, let me know! I love to hear your thoughts and ideas on my ramblings.  This is my place just to let some of that busyness in my head flow through, so enjoy!
