Welcome to My webpage!  I am excited to be your son or daughters Pre-AP Chemistry or Chemistry 1 teacher for the 2019-2020 school year!  A little about me....I was born in California and lived up and down the West Coast.  I came to Texas via the Air Force and I was gradually adopted by this great state.  I really loved my time in the military and once I fulfilled my active duty contract I followed my wife around as she progressed in her military career and taught / coached wherever the Air Force put us. As my wife and I have grown as a couple we have brought four wonderful children into our lives.  Lots of hugs and kisses from my kids has been one of the biggest blessings in my life.  I really love San Antonio for its support for the military, I am proud to call San Antonio home and live in Military City USA!   I have been teaching for 10 years now and have loved every minute of it.  I started teaching in Texas and from here I have taught in Alaska and did some coaching of football/soccer when my family was in Alabama.  Once we got orders back to San Antonio I knew there was only one place for me to teach and live and that is right here at Johnson High School!  I am very blessed to have served here at Johnson since 2015.  The staff and students have been great here and the transition back to San Antonio from Alaska was all the easier because of them.  Chemistry is such a fun and interesting subject to teach and I hope that your child will enjoy their year with me.  Go JAGS!!
