I am in my 7th year teaching in the Basehor-Linwood school district and currently am the BLMS 7/8 PE/Advanced PE/Body Systems Teacher as well as the BLHS Head Wrestling Coach. I graduated with two BA's degrees in PE with one being an emphasis in Sports Management and the other K-12 Education. I completed my M.Ed. in Positive Coaching & Athletic Leadership in 2020 from the University of Missouri. Additionally, I served in the United States Military in the Army National Guard from 1997-2006. I have an amazing family, married to Crystal Puderbaugh now for 18 years and have 4 Children - Caden, Cael, Cyleigh, and Cyler. Some fun facts about me are that my favorite holiday is Christmas, my favorite drink is caramel frappe' from Starbucks, and my favorite quote is, "Noah didn't wait for his ship to come in, he built one," by Jeff Jordan. Lastly, my hobbies include: paddle boarding at the lake and hiking in the Rocky Mountains.
