Hello, Sun Devils! I have over 14 years of middle school PE experience, and I am excited to be a part of the McAuliffe team. I grew up in York, Nebraska, where I enjoyed playing sports throughout my High School career. I went to college at the University of Nebraska – Kearney, where I earned my undergraduate degree in Health and Physical Education. After graduating, I took my first job in Denver Public Schools and I have been here ever since. While teaching in Denver, I continued my education at Lesley University where I got a Masters degree in Technology in Education. I met my beautiful wife Casey while she was working for DPS as a Sign Language Interpreter. We have two awesome children, Jase and Teagan. We enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, and visiting family in Nebraska and Arizona.
