• I am the American History teacher on the Sirius Team and am beginning my sixth year as a classroom teacher.  I love teaching American History and allowing students to examine primary source documents so they can make their own interpretations of what happened in history. The Webster Groves School District is where I have spent my entire life. I even attended Steger! My lovely wife is Carla Pingel,who teaches 5th Grade at Hudson Elementary. We have spent the summer swimming in our pool and hanging out at the river with our three wonderful children, Lily,Owen, and Will, ages 12, 8 and 7. Let's not forget our dog, Jeb, and cat, Gaby.
