    I have worked in education for 20 years and am excited to work at PGS in my 4th year.  Prior to teaching I graduated from TESC and WWU studying math and physics.  My passion has been to learn about science and mathematics and to explore meaning with students from real world applications.  I have also served as a K-12 district administrator and can appreciate how important teamwork is with parents, teachers, and the full educational community to make learning relevant and exciting for our students.  I know school is difficult for many children, and I enjoy working with families to help students find their strengths and navigate the learning process. I so look forward to working with our kids again this year and teaming with our PGS staff.
    I am also a proud parent of Jack (8th grader) and Mia (12th grader) who also attend TumH2O schools.  My wife Jen and I are both TumH2O High School grads and love our schools and community.  On any given day you might find us playing soccer, running, biking, fishing, hiking, or drinking Diet Coke!
    I am a major Seattle Sounders and international soccer fan!  Soccer is a game of preparation, perserverance, and teamwork.  Few goals are made, but those that are reached are pretty.
    Most importantly, I cannot wait for a world-class year ahead, isn't that why we are here?!     ~D. Casler
