About Me

I am so excited to come to Barrie Wilson! I am looking forward to meeting the students and families which make this building such an amazing place to be. I will be learning much as the year goes on from the knowledgeable staff and look forward to the challenges and successes of a new school.

This will be my 7th year with Red Deer Public Schools after graduating from the U of A program through Red Deer College.  I previously taught grade four and grade 2 at Grandview Elementary School which is now the new home of the Spanish immersion school.  Since I "No hablo español" I was given the opportunity to come to Barrie Wilson which I jumped at! I am really looking forward to everything Barrie Wilson has to offer and hope I can bring some of my personality to the school.

When not in school I spend my time with my two boys, who both attend Barrie Wilson, and my wife of 14 years.  I love to play and watch sports whenever I can and I really enjoy building projects in my garage.
