In 2008, Terry moved to Idaho from Arizona with his family to start a business and was excited to resume his career in education thereafter. He went back to school and earned his Masters of Education from the University of Idaho in Educational Leadership. Terry has a diverse background in education, business and the technical sector and has worked as a teacher, principal, business development executive, network consultant, and entrepreneur. All those positions taught him valuable lessons, but he is most passionate about working with students and helping them achieve their academic and personal potential. He loves spending time with his wife and two kids exploring the outdoors, watching a good movie, visiting a museum or attending a sporting event.

On a personal note and as an educator, I have a passion for helping young people recognize their potential regardless of past, present or future setbacks. I personally have experienced some challenges and had to work my way through them. However, adversity can be a great teacher and education coupled with compassion and perseverance can greatly empower and enhance our lives. I bring this passion and perspective into my teaching and feel that Novitas provides me with a wonderful opportunity to give back. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to be here and work with these young men.
