    I have taught at both the high school and college level.  I enjoy teaching both although they are quite different.  I'm currently teaching at Mt.

    If you are in my class, you know my hobbies.  My family is my priority, so I spend alot of time with them hiking, camping, and of course, Raider games.  I'm a die-hard Raider fan.  I've been following the team for as long as I can remember.  Attended my first Raider game when they were playing in LA and I was in H.S.  I also love to ride my Harley either to work or on the weekends.  I love car shows, biker rallys, lowrider shows, and anything that has to do with loud engines and wheels.  My musical taste is weird.  My favorite is classic rock, punk, rockabilly or alternative, but I also listen to oldies, hip hop, and whatever else is interesting.  Go Raiders!
