I have been teaching in GFPS since 2003. I began my teaching career working with students with disabilities in the PE setting. I moved to the classroom to teach students dealing with emotional disturbances, and eventually to Health/PE and Weight Training at CMR. Teaching the importance of physical, mental, and social health is a passion of mine. At Paris, we have the flexibility to tackle each area of Health on a more individualized basis. It is truly a privilege to return to Paris Gibson as a Health & PE teacher. 

Originally from Billings, I attended my bachelor's program at Western Montana College and graduate program at the University of Montana. My wife Katie is originally from Great Falls and is a Special Education Pre-school teacher at Skyline Early Learning Center. My favorite activities revolve around my family. Katie and I have two wonderful children that have kept us busy since 2000. Gabby is finishing her nursing degree at Carroll College and Wyatt is a freshman at Montana State. We enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, snowboarding, and anything else that gets us off the couch. When I can't get outside, I enjoy reading, knitting, and watching football with our Saint Bernard (wife's idea) and English Bulldog.
