    I don't really like puppies.  I thought that needed to be said right away.  It's not that I dislike puppies, it's just that I don't find them that cute.  When I see a puppy I think of a destroyed house and poop all over the lawn.  I've been teaching 8th grade Earth Science since 2003.  I have a wife, two daughters, and three cats... one like to snuggle, one likes to wrestle, and one is crazy.  I've received a Biblical studies degree from Northwestern College and a teaching degree from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.  I also have a Master's degree from St. Mary's University.  I enjoy playing Irish folk music on guitar and visiting State Parks in my family's pop-up camper in the summers.  I also enjoy finding the worst music possible to play for my students.  In middle school I lived in Belgium.  Yes, they have good waffles.
