I grew up around the St. Louis area in southern Illinois. I am the last of 5 children and therefore grew up with a very large family with lots of nieces and nephews. I love family life! I attended college at Western Illinois University in Macomb Illinois where I met my wife Jane and also received my Bachelor of Science degree in Education. I have had the opportunity to teach in Israel, China and the United States. I have over 40 years of teaching experience and continue to love and enjoy my profession. I am very much a sports enthusiast of every kind and personally enjoy hiking, biking, weight training and long walks by the ocean. My wife and I have three children and 6 awesome grandchildren.
