Students either take my courses of World History, Sociology, and/or P.E. Fitness. I am also a 7th boys assistant basketball and HS assistant girls soccer coach.
I encourage both students and parents to keep track of their class(es) in Infinite Campus. Both World History and Sociology will utilize the students' laptops and online "Moodle" platforms. In both classes, participation and preparation are keys to success.[Parents] Any basic questions are best communicated via email. If the question/concern solicits a more personal conversation - please do not hesitate to contact me.
I believe that most issues are easily rectified and I try to resolve them with the student first. However, if I have any concerns, I will certainly contact you. I encourage & refer student inquiries to utilize SUCCESS. SUCCESS is my designated "office" hours to be available for students - each day.

I am very blessed to live in Orange City with my wonderful wife, Kristin and two children, Landen and McKinley. My wife works for THS at the Orange City Hospital, Landen attends Northwestern, and McKinley attends MOC-FV HS. We have lived in Orange City since moving from the Kansas City area back in 2001. I am entering my 6th year at MOC-FV and 18th teaching overall. I have a Masters Degree (Dordt '16) in Teacher Leadership, B.A. ('95 Westmar) in Physical Education, and B.S ('98 S.Dakota) in History Education. Besides teaching, I serve the district as an athletic coach, AIW Local Coach, PLC leader, and 6-12 Social Studies Curriculum Coordinator. Before teaching at MOC-FV, I taught at Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn, West Monona,Sheldon, and Lincoln College Prep in Kansas City, MO. During my time, I have taught every grade 6-12 and every SS course.
