Hello, Baker Eagles!!!! I love being here at Baker Elementary School! I began my teaching career in 2000 in the State of Illinois. I left the field of Education in 2002, but I returned in 2010. Prior to coming to PISD, I spent five years working at Imagine International Academy of North Texas, which is a public charter school in McKinney. I have taught in Special Education (behavior disorder), in addition to my experience in the physical education classroom. I have taught students at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. I absolutely love the excitement that elementary students bring to the classroom. Their wonder and enthusiasm make teaching elementary physical education fun for me! On a personal note, I grew up in Austin, Texas, and attended Stephen F. Austin High School. I graduated from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management. I also have a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Webster University (St. Louis) and a Master of Sports Science/Sports Management from the U.S. Sports Academy (Daphne, Alabama). I married my wife, Tammi, on July 1, 2016. I have a step-daughter, Maria, that will be a part of the graduating class of 2021 at The University of Texas at Austin (Hook 'Em)! My wife has facilitated me becoming hooked on golf, several summers ago. I love the game of golf and the peace and quiet that it affords! We also enjoy visiting upscale hotels for Staycations. The best times are when we can include golf with our Staycation! We also enjoy attending college and professional football and basketball games, live. In addition to my occupation as a teacher, I have an avocation. I officiate high school and college basketball. After my years of playing and coaching basketball, I have found another way to stay close to the game. I absolutely love serving students! I also enjoy serving student-athletes and coaches in my role as a basketball official. I am extremely excited about this school year! We have a lot of great things in store for our students! I am here, and look forward to serving and working with you! It is going to be a great year at Baker Elementary School...where Kindness is Essential! Go Eagles!!!! WE ARE PROSPER!!!!
