Hello Spudder Families,

Welcome back to another great year at Ridgefield High School! I am excited to return for my fifth year as a Spudder and my 16th year of teaching English! I grew up in nearby Castle Rock, Washington, and graduated from Washington State University (Pullman) before beginning my career teaching at Battle Ground High School.  During that time, I earned my Master's in Education at Washington State University (Vancouver).  I currently live in Portland, Oregon and spend my free time climbing mountains and traveling with my wife.

Working with young people has always been a passion, and I am excited to spend another year exploring literature and  helping students find their voices! I love coming to work at a place where I know I will learn, laugh, and share an "aha" moment with students nearly every single day.

If you are a student or a parent looking for class updates, the best source is Skyward Access; I update large assignments ahead of due dates and also send out weekly announcements every Friday.  Because I am so consistent in this, I will not regularly update this webpage.  Please do, however, contact me whenever you have questions; the best medium is email, but I will return phone calls, as well.

Go Spuds!
