I grew up just north of Chicago in a town called Northbrook, came out to Utah to go to college, married a beautiful local girl, and stayed put. I swapped trees for mountains (a fair trade), and real pizza for Domino’s (not even close), but I love it here.
I received my teaching degree from BYU, finished my student teaching at Landmark High School in Spanish Fork, and came straight here to Lone Peak. I’ve been here since 2001, with a few detours along the way. I love Lone Peak—the students, the faculty, the admin, the community. It feels good here, and I’m always excited to start a new year. I can most humbly say that I never dread going to work in the morning.
Before becoming a teacher (something my mother says is “cosmic justice”) I worked with at-risk youth in state’s custody. I helped them through their mandated programs, and co-facilitated substance abuse group therapy sessions. Tough at times, but I loved it. It’s what led me to eventually do what I do now.
