DSC_0217 McLaren (Small)Welcome to my homepage.  I currently teach all English classes for 6th grade, one English class for 7th grade, and one 6th grade science class.  This is my fifth year of teaching at the middle school level, previously I spent 10 years teaching 5th grade at Shields Elementary.

I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and three boys.  We are very active going place to place with travel sports and other extra curricular activities.  I love the outdoors and have been an avid hunter for 20+ years.
