I’m originally from Northwest Iowa, but this is my 28th year at Urbandale High School, and I’m proud to call myself a J-Hawk. I have taught ten different Language Arts classes at UHS, but this is my third year teaching RECESS.
My goal is to provide students a safe and quiet environment with a focus on helping them learn how to help themselves.
My wife, Daphne, teaches instrumental music at Urbandale Middle School, and our daughter is a J-Hawk in fourth grade.
I’m excited to have your student in our classroom this year, and I welcome you to contact me when you have a question.
Strategic Goal for RECESS
By the end of the semester, 100% of all students will demonstrate an understanding of course power standards as measured by a score of 60% or better on all common assessments.
Grades For Recess
Students in RECESS are graded on attendance and effort in the classroom. Please contact me if you have any questions about your student’s grade.
