1) What made you want to become a gym teacher?

2) What do you do outside of work?

“I usually just work on my house or my drone.”

3) Who will you be voting for in the upcoming presidential election and why?

“I’ll refrain from that one for right now.”

4) Who’s the biggest role model in your life?

“There are a lot of role models in my life, but I would have to say the biggest would be my older brother, who is also a teacher.”

5) Any jobs before becoming a teacher?

“Too many jobs, man. I’ve worked at an electrical warehouse. I’ve sold cars. I’ve sold motorcycles. I’ve done asphalt maintenance, steel coating, deck staining, power washing, you name it.”

6) Best experience you’ve ever had?

“Marrying my wife.”

7) If you were entering the 9th grade again, what would you do differently?
