Mr. Toombs started his career as the chief of police of Amity Island, a sleepy New England beach community. However, when a young woman was killed by a shark the mayor refused to close the beaches fearing lost tourist revenue. Mr. Toombs then teamed up with a marine bioligist and a grizzled sea captain to help capture the killer beast. Mr. Toombs was the lone survivor of an epic man vs. nature battle with the greatest of white sharks and has since turned to teaching 7th grade math in an attempt to put his enduring struggle behind him.
As a teacher he spends his time encouraging students to think criticaly, push themselves, and develop a growth mindset.
When he is not teaching or trying to forget his past he is raising two boys with his wife. If he manages to have free time after that you might find him skiing, mountain biking, playing board games, or just relaxing.
