Tell us a little more about yourself.
“After graduating from Bellarmine in 2010, I went on to attend college at Central Washington University. In the spring of 2020, I graduated with a teaching degree from Western Governors University. Although this is my first full year of teaching at Bellarmine, I completed my student teaching here during the 2019-2020 school year. Outside of teaching, I am married to a Bellarmine alum, Madison Peterson Unruh B’13. We enjoy spending time outdoors and cooking. I also enjoy golfing, reading, and spending time with family.”
What inspired you to pursue a career in teaching?
“After coaching for several years, I realized how rewarding it is to work with kids and see them grow into leaders in our community. I realized that I wanted to be a part of their development and decided to pursue a degree in education.”
What has been your most rewarding experience as a teacher so far?
“One of the most rewarding aspects of this job is having students go out of their way to stop in my classroom and talk about different aspects of their lives. It is very rewarding to be able to provide some perspective on certain situations.”
