Location: SAVA Charter Elk Grove
Position: Independent Study Teacher – Multiple Subjects

Education: Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Masters in Curriculum and Instruction

About Me: I grew up in San Jose, California and still frequently visit the Bay Area. After attending several colleges, I got my degree at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. I have lived in the Sacramento area since 2004, and most of that time I spent teaching math at Einstein Middle School in Sacramento. I have taught a few different subjects over the years, but math remains my specialty. I live in Elk Grove with my fabulous wife and two wonderful children. I joined SAVA in 2015. It has been a big change from a more traditional classroom, but I enjoy the faculty, students and environment here at SAVA.

Interests: I enjoy watching and playing sports. I like being outdoors and staying active. I avidly root for the 3-time World Champion San Francisco Giants. I enjoy various types of games including board games, poker, and other card games.
