This is the 25th year that I've been a teacher in Livermore! I started my career 25 years ago here at Rancho. After a brief stint at Rancho, I moved to Sunset Elementary School for 16 years teaching both 3rd and 4th grade. I returned to Rancho 9 years ago to teach 5th grade. I love Rancho for many reasons, but I love it the most because besides being such an amazing school, it's where I went to 5th grade and elementary school, myself. 5th grade is a BIG year and I will spend the year getting your children ready for middle school, which is right around the corner! My wife is also a teacher and teaches 3rd grade at Smith Elementary School in Livermore. I have 3 children. Having 3 kids keeps me busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I've lived in Livermore for my entire life. I love driving my Jeep, drinking my morning coffee, going on trips to the beach, working out and staying fit, and the San Francisco Giants! You will notice that I stress organization, responsibility, respect, and kindness in our classroom. We ARE a little family in Room 26. I love being a teacher and it's important to me that students always give their BEST EFFORT! I do expect students to work hard in class, but I promise that they'll have fun and leave with great memories of this year and learn a lot in the process. I'm ALWAYS here to support my students! Together, let's make this your child's best school year yet!
