What is your favorite memory of teaching at Pattonville? 

  • “Being able to teach at the elementary level, the middle school level, and the high school level. I think teaching the outdoor adventure class for the last 18 years has provided for a lot of great memories and it was a very unique class. It was really special having a lot of incredible memories with coaching softball and baseball as well.”


What made you want to teach? 

  • “I decided I liked working with kids of all ages and I wanted to coach and so with the combination of liking those two things it was a no brainer for me.”


What will you miss the most? 

  • “I’ll miss the buddies I teach with and the PE department and all of the coaches that i’ve been fortunate enough to coach with. I’ll miss a lot of my students that I developed nice relationships with and I really enjoyed there company as well as a lot of my athletes that played ball for me whether that was softball or baseball. They were really good kids and I was very lucky and blessed to have them.”


Do you have any plans for after you retire? 

  • “Do whatever I want. No definite plans right now just to get settled in and take a day at a time and enjoy spending more time with my friends and family. Pursing some hobbies and going on vacation a couple of times this summer and play some golf while i’m at it.”
