Hello from the beautifully green state of Oregon. Even though there is a lot of rain, we love our weather and our place in the woods here at Lewis & Clark. Before working here in the AES, I taught English in many locations around Portland. I think you’ll enjoy the small number of students here and the dedicated teachers you will work with.
On a personal note, I am originally from Oregon and have lived in just about every part of the state. I enjoy traveling, but haven’t found anywhere I like as much as Portland. There are many things to do and many wonderful people here. Basketball is my favorite sport, and I am a loyal fan to our local team, the Trail Blazers. I am active also in softball, golf, and running. My beautiful wife and I are raising our twin children, a boy and a girl, which keeps us busy most of the time. I look forward to meeting you!
