I am in my 20th year teaching at Azle High School having coached the first 17 of those years. My love of the outdoors led me to start the Outdoor Adventures class at Azle High School, which I have now had the privilege to teach for 6 years. I am a curriculum writer for the Outdoors Tomorrow Foundation, recipient of the Outdoor Adventures Educator of the Year Award, and currently, I am working toward being a National Board-Certified Teacher. I love sharing my passion for the outdoors and the activities I love such as backpacking, wildlife photography, kayak fishing, fly fishing, rock climbing, skiing, adventure racing, ultra-running, and camping. I also enjoy coaching our archery team as well as working with the Christian Outdoors Ministry to take students on hunts and fishing trips. I love teaching, and I am always excited for my next adventure!
