Having taught at Bartlett since student-teaching in 1981, I have enjoyed watching generations of students move through the school. But after 20+ years, a change a pace has led me to the Technology Coordinator position at South Anchorage High School. Interests outside of education include cross-country skiing and whitewater boating. While not having time to continue coaching, I have been involved with computerizing ski results. We are continuing our work towards the fulfillment of Tryon's Maxim
