What do you like about working at University High School?

I get to do the things that I love with students and colleagues that care about learning and each other. Every day. What could be better than that?

Personal Information

I live in Carmel with my daughter (who is a Freshman at University High School) and two persnickety cats. I spend my time away from school reading a lot, writing a little, and being the best mediocre trumpet player in Central Indiana.
