Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: My family and I enjoy camping, hiking in Colorado, watching movies, bike rides, and anything else we can do together.  I enjoy playing golf, soccer, softball, fishing, hunting and running.

Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman?  I wanted to be part of an exciting journey to help develop the whole child: academically, socially, and emotionally.
