Welcome!  I've put lots of things here for my students at Mt. Everest Academy.  Please choose from this list:  

Please make sure to look through the Frequently Asked Questions webpage (the second link in the list above).  Look through it before emailing me with a question, because I might have already answered through the link at that page.   



Please email instead of call. The phone in my classroom is always turned off, and I do not listen to voice mail.

About me: 

I grew up in New York City and New England, then served four years in the U.S. Navy and settled in San Diego.  I taught at Mann Middle School for thirteen years, and this is now my fourteenth year at Mt. Everest Academy.  I live in East County with my wonderful wife and two amazing children.  I'm an avid reader, love sports (especially baseball) and I have a strong foundation in my religious beliefs and thus involvement in my church, Shadow Mountain Community Church.  My son and I are learning Martial Arts together (United Fighting Arts Federation); I'm working to earn my black belt in the next couple of years.  My academic interests focus on history as well as math; the U.S. presidents and the War Between the States are my favorite topics.
