We heart Arizona. Like, a lot! As a school administrator, Dad is knowledgeable in the area of education and has quite the passion to talk about it. He started a PBIS podcast this year, focused on gathering information on how schools are implementing this positive system (thePBISnetwork.com). He'll take any chance he can get to perform; drumming on trash cans, leading a church in worship, or speaking to a crowd. Mom runs a local wedding and portrait studio, is one of those extroverted introverts, and loves exploring the Sonoran desert. At the same school as her hubby, she runs an after school enrichment program utilizing grant funds to give kids new learning experiences!
Zach, 8, has a passion to start a YouTube channel. You'll have the honor of being his first viewers! He loves to play video games, learn about science and nature, and... talking. Always talking. His "Hey, Dad!" series is sure to be a hilarious hit, based on his random thoughts. Little sister, Grace, 6, is a stuffed animal hoarder. She would collect real animals if her mother allowed it. You'll find her running at the park, riding her bike, and whispering to neighborhood pigeons and lizards.
As a family, we love to eat good food, and spend as much time outside as the desert heat allows. Each summer, we look forward to our annual camping trip!
