I am grateful to be teaching another year in Plano ISD!
This is my nineth year teaching music, all here at Haun Elementary. This school is amazing and I am blessed to work with such a great group of both students and staff.
Originally from Colorado, I moved to Texas to attend college in Waxahachie. Shortly after school, I met my wife here in the Lone Star State. We have two beautiful children, three cats, four chickens, and one rooster.
Music has been an incredibly active part of my life for as long as I can remember. I enjoy singing and playing the piano, guitar, bass and drums. When it comes to teaching music, I enjoy laying down the musical foundations and building on those skills each year with our students. I strive to provide intentional, engaging, and fun ways for students to both encounter and learn music, both individually and within their respective homeroom classes.
My hope overall is that the students at Haun not only learn music, but also develop and carry a love for music no matter where they go or what they do.
