Job: Eagle Valley High School teacher

In high school I was … A jock. I loved sports and the outdoors. I did everything — wrestling, football, biking, track, baseball, hunting, fishing.
If I was a T-shirt, I would be (fabric, color, any print?)… Camo, big and comfy.
What’s the best thing about your town? Close to great fishing
The best thing about my job is … The kids.
As a kid, I always… Wanted to play pro football.
If I could be any superhero, I’d be … Superman. Flying would be pretty sweet.
If I was given a million dollars, the first thing I’d buy is… A trip back to Hawaii, so I could buy a whale watching boat in Hawaii.
The graduates of Vail Mountain School’s class of 2019 will be off to far-flung destinations next fall, set to enter college in one of 16 different states or explore the world on a gap year. One grad is even attending college in Canada.
