Curriculum Highlight — In teaching constitutional law, political economy, economics, literature and debate daily, I am able to match my wits and wits of my students with James Madison and J. Reuben Clark, Edmund Burke with Ezra Benson, and even Marx with Monson; the ability to access and deliver truth, no matter where and from whom it is found, is the highlight of the curriculum I teach.
Education — Bachelors of Arts, Family Science & Spanish, Utah State University; Master of Science, Instructional Technology, Utah State University
Why Teaching? — The teaching profession chose me, and it is what I think about when I have nothing else to think about. My work here is a mission for me.
Why AHS? — It is one of the only schooling environments, outside of the home, where truth can still be taught, debated, and ultimately found frequently, by word and spirit.
Family — I am married to Tresa Haymond and we have seven children: Layna, Ammon, Samuel, Daniel, Grace, Mariah, and Joey. Layna, who is married, has blessed us with beautiful grandchildren.
We have traveled internationally for humanitarian purposes, we consider Panguitch Lake a heavenly destination and we love to be together.
Hobbies — My hobbies consist of praying, repenting, thinking, reading, speaking, playing, traveling to serve, making food, improving my husbandry and fathering, and striving to be a partaker of the “divine nature”.
What have you learned at AHS? — I have learned that the 4Ring methodology (well explained in Moroni 10:3-5) is a recipe for revelation, and that relating part of the process is key to really appreciating what history can teach us. I have learned to love even more the principle of individuality and the balance between justice and mercy.
“My most treasured interactions with students (and I have had many) are when our class experiences help them heal a broken heart or broken relationship at home.”
