Name of School:Robert G. Cole High School
School's Website:
School Type:Public
Average Class Size:21-30


I taught for two years in high poverty urban schools with at-risk students. It was amazing work and I learned a lot from it. I currently just moved to San Antonio and have a job that couldn't be more different than where I came from. That being said, I love every second of what I do you can't really argue with that.

Interests and Hobbies

Cooking, sailing, teaching, reading, building stuff.

Favorite Music

Too many kinds to narrow it down...

Favorite Books

Lord of the Flies, To Kill a Mockingbird, Dr. Doolittle (the original), Wicked, and many many more.

Favorite Quotations

Not knowing history is like being a leaf that doesn't know it's part of a tree.

Funny Teaching Tale

Again, too many to narrow it down. It's one of the things that makes this job so fun.

Teaching Passion

I love the "light bulb moment", where a student all of a sudden looks up as if to say, "I get it!", after struggling to understand something. I also love when I can make a historical event come alive for a student.
