Welcome to my school web site. Please use the menu above to navigate among the pages.

Without a doubt my favorite page is Student Artwork.

Here I am pictured in my classroom with some of my favorite three-dimensional models — objects that are assigned to students to draw in their second or third year. Come see me if drawing stuff like this looks fun to you.
