Letter from the VP

I am very excited to be at Ben Hulse!  I am always amazed to see how much students grow emotionally, socially and academically during the course of the year.  It is my privilege to be able to share their excitement and enthusiasm for learning.  

A little bit about me... This year marks my 14th year teaching.  I have experience teaching every grade level from kindergarten through 8th grade. All of my teaching experience has been in Language Acquisition. I truly believe in multilingualism.I taught in San Diego Unified and Lakeside Unified School districts, before finding my home here at Ben Hulse.Truly, I am very excited!!  I love coming to work every day surrounded by amazing kids, fantastic staff, families, inspiring colleagues and a supportive administration. 

I am a husband of two years and have a beautiful two-month-old boy. I served abroad in Germany for eight years during my younger days.  In addition to my passion for teaching, I enjoy running and hiking, being outdoors gardening, and being goofy. 

I firmly believe that the education of children stems from a strong relationship between the home and school.  I believe that teachers and parents are partners in education and by working together we can help our children succeed.  I am excited to teach and to learn from the professional staff and administration at Ben Hulse. My goal is to not stop learning and to provide our students with the tools they need to be successful!  I strive to provide a nurturing, yet academically challenging environment for each and every student.
