About The Teacher

Panther POWER is a way of life at Bonney Lake High School and I believe school pride is one of the most important aspects of having a successful school. All of my classes are geared towards helping improve the culture of the school by learning through experiential education. Video Projects support what is happening in the school, Photo Projects showcase our Panther Spirit and the Leadership Class creates an engaging atmosphere where students take pride in being a Panther. 

My school pride goes back to my college experience. I am a die hard WSU fan and spent two years of my life proudly serving as the mascot, Butch T. Cougar. I am married to my high school sweetheart and have two sons. I've always had a passion for teaching, but I spent the first part of my career in the broadcasting industry working for various radio stations and TV news outlets around the state of Washington including: KMIH-FM, NorthWest Cable News (NWCN), KREM 2 News (Spokane),106.1 KBKS-FM, 104.3 KHTR-FM, 1150 KQQQ-AM, and 89.9 KGHP-FM. I have also been involved in the state's Student Leadership Program for the past 15 years. I am happy to combine my passion and my experience as a CTE teacher at Bonney Lake High School.

Class Expectations

Students are expected to live the Panther Culture: POWER – Perseverance, Ownership, Work Ethic, Engagement, and Respect.  Living the Panther Culture is accomplished by following the Bonney Lake High School POWER Matrix and following the Essential Eight Behavior Expectations. My classes are ran like a business and students are expected to act in a professional manner.

Classroom Learning Online

Students will use Schoology for their assignments, resources, and tests. Schoology is an online learning management system. 
Parents can access to see the material their student are learning. Please email the teacher for your student's parent access code to their Schoology account. Click here for direction on creating a Student Schoology Account. 

Students will also be utilizing their Google Drive accounts that the district provides them.

Students should follow the class's Google Calendar, not the Schoology calendar, which can be found in the Classes and Links section above.
