As a returning teacher to Fairview High School, I am super excited for the upcoming year. This year I have the pleasure of teaching World History, World Humanities, and providing support to the Chinese Language and Culture Club.
I graduated from St. Olaf College in 2009 double majoring in Asian Studies and Chinese Language. My first teaching position was as an English Language Professor at 华东师范大学 (East China Normal University) in Shanghai, China.
I took a leave from classroom instruction to work in industry for 6 years, working at various companies including:
Forney Industries - Fort Collins
Tolmar Pharmaceuticals - Fort Collins
种植留学 (zhong zhi liu xue) - Shanghai
After completing my Master's in Education through Colorado State I joined the team here at Fairview in 2016. My wife, two daughters, and I purchased our home in the Longmont area in 2019 and I am looking forward to getting things settled as it cools down this fall. If you are still reading this bio then you should know my new hobby involves model trains in "N scale" and I am happy to host a club should the student interest exist.
You can contact me best through email, but phone calls and scheduled face to face meetings are always welcome.
