What is your education background and experience?

Hello Webber Family, My background is about as diverse as the populations I have served.  I began my adventure in teaching as a volunteer Kindergarten Aide/6th Grade Science teacher on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.  After which, I went to Canada as a Tribal Anthropologist to assist in reconstructing Clan identities for the Lhoosk'uz Dene.  But during that time, I also taught K-Adult in a three room village school.  Returning to the US, I received a MA in History and taught for 3 years at a charter school in Flagstaff, AZ and 3 as a professor of Western Civilization at Northern Arizona University.  Following my wife's move into administration, I journeyed to Page Middle School (also the Panthers!) where I was the Behavior Interventionist. Upon my wife accepting the position of Principal at CLP, I happily para-ed at Rocky in the Moderate Needs department before landing here for what I hope to be my last adventure (in schools, that is!). Besides years of fieldwork and academics, I also bring my knowledge of native outdoor-craft from years spent with Lakota Sioux (Plains), Northern Carriers (Sub-Arctic) and Navajo (Desert Southwest).

What are your favorite hobbies or interests outside of school?

Hiking, Painting, Gardening, Reading Non-Fiction, Playing with my family, AND LOVING COLORADO!!!!!!
