Good Day Everyone,


Welcome to my home page. I would like to introduce myself. I am one of the Special Education teachers here at Thompson Middle school. I have Bachelors of Arts, History. Studying history is one of my passions, especially California history and US 1800 History.  I am an avid backpacker and I consider the Eastern Sierra Nevada my backyard. My family and I do lots of outdoor sports as well in the area.

My career in education started as an Academic Advisor for international students in the private sector and then to public sector with San Juan Capistrano Unified. I then moved from this area of education to complete my Social Studies and Special Education credential. I started teaching in 2001 in the Garden Grove Unified School District teaching special education to middle schoolers. In 2005, my family and I moved to Murrieta and have been at Thompson Middle School ever since. My wife and I have all our kids within the school district and love it out here. This is a great place to live and work.
