Steve started his teaching career in Apache Junction, Arizona and taught 6th and 7th grades for 5 years. During his time in Arizona he married Rebecca and they have four children. These four children keep them busy with many activities and much laughter.
In 2000 they moved to Utah and Steve began working at Bloomington Hills Elementary as a 5th grade teacher. Steve taught fifth grade for four years and then was fortunate enough to become Principal of Bloomington Hills Elementary. Four years ago Steve moved to Heritage Elementary, and has loved every minute of his time in the elementary schools. He will miss the students, faculty and parents at Heritage.
