What do you like about working at University High School?

I like working at a place where the students really care about learning. Their energy, enthusiasm, and dedication inspire me to keep working hard. Additionally, I like working at a place where I feel that both I and the students can be our genuine selves, sharing interests in addition to learning together.

Personal Information

I am married to my lovely wife of 29 years, Carolyn, and we have a son named Gordon, a 2021 graduate of University High School. Outside of school, I enjoy playing games, catching up on reading, and hiking.
