What do you love most about teaching?

I enjoy interacting with the kids and helping them grow as students and people.

What were you like in high school?

I was shy in high school and spent most of my time playing sports and studying.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

I would live on a beach where I could surf every day. I am happiest when I am on the beach and surfing.

If you could meet any historical figure, who would you meet, and why?

I would meet Abraham Lincoln because I admire him as a leader and a writer.

If you were a vegetable, what would you be?

I eat like a 5-year old and avoid vegetables as much as possible. If I had to be one, I would be broccoli.

What has been your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement is helping student-athletes reach their academic and athletic goals.
