Department Chair, IB History, and Government
I’m a graduate of Huntington University with a B.S. in Social Studies Secondary Education and minors in teaching theater, radio, television, and speech. In 2010, I received my M.Ed. from Indiana Wesleyan University. I started teaching high school in Chicago, and since then, I have taught grades 5-12 on three different continents. My wife and I started overseas teaching at Khartoum American School in Sudan, and we later moved to Russia where we taught at the Anglo American School of Moscow. In that time we’ve had the amazing opportunity to visit over 30 countries, and these experiences changed our outlook on the world. The mission of WIHI to approach learning from a truly international perspective inspires me, and I am so glad to be working at this school.
My wonderful wife and I were blessed with a beautiful son, born in the fall of 2012. I enjoy the outdoors and have recently started participating in activities with a “–thon” at the end, including a marathon and several triathlons.
IB History, World Studies & Economics Teacher, CAS Coordinator
I am pleased to be teaching at WIHI, covering World Studies, Economics, and IB 20th Century World History. A Michigander for most of my life, I attended the University of Michigan, earning a Bachelor of Arts in History in 2008 (including four years as a member of the Michigan Marching Band) and a Master of Arts in Education in 2009. Last year I had a fantastic experience working with WIHI students in Interact Club and Place Out of Time enrichment, and I look forward to continuing to build these programs. In my spare time, I enjoy playing sports including soccer, softball, and ultimate Frisbee, as well as scuba diving. My wife and I are also proud new parents of two wonderful boys!
Economics and American Studies Teacher
I am a life-long Michigander, growing up in the Metro-Detroit area. I have lived all over the state, earning degrees from Oakland University, Michigan State University, and the University of Michigan. I currently teach DP Economics, 10th Grade Economics, and 9th Grade World Studies. Along with Mr. Basler, I serve as faculty sponsor for the Yearbook Club, and I also sponsor the WIHI Business Club. I live in Canton with my girlfriend, Sara, our dog Phoebe, and our cat Bubastis. In my spare time I love sports, board games, video games, and reading. I am overjoyed to be working at WIHI with all the wonderful students here and I look forward to the years to come!
