I am a husband, a dad, a teacher, and an adjunct

professor. For the past two decades my heart’s 

work has been to help my students grow, learn, 

and become through our work together in learning

and teaching. 

My work as a teacher is driven by what I hold to be

true.  As a teacher, I want my words, actions and 

reactions to show God’s love to my students, and

as a father I want the same for my own children

from their teachers.

The field of education is a tricky place to be these

days.  Teaching, learning, and understanding stuff

is what we measure, but there is so much more to

the calling of a teacher, especially if that teacher is

a person of faith.  We are called to live a certain 

way in all places in our lives, and this way of living

has its roots in what we believe.

I have written a book called Scattering Seed in 

Teaching to share the lessons that God has been 

teaching me the past 20 years in education. Through 

it I want to encourage and challenge other people of 

faith who are teaching now or preparing to teach.

I want to help them see their calling in life as the 

same as their calling to teach and live out who 

they ARE in all they do.

This way of seeing and understanding will bless 

their students, their colleagues, their communities, 

themselves; and it will honor GOD.
