I am happily married and a father of three outstanding kids. I have worked in K-12 education for 24 years across the state of Oregon. Being employed in four different school districts, in four vastly different parts of the state, has been a great learning experience for me. Serving as a classroom teacher, counselor, and administrator at both the building and district level have given me first-hand understanding of the pressures and challenges of being a young person in today’s society. It is with this background and knowledge that I view the work of the Shared Future Coalition as not only important, but vital.
