About Me

Educational History:

Friends University, 1991

Baker University, 2003

Degrees and Certifications:

Friends University, BS in Elementary Education

Baker University, MA in School Leadership

Professional Development:

In the 2015-16 I was nominated as an elementary principal of the year candidate. 

While serving as an Athletic Director I represented our league on the KSHSAA Board of Directors. I also served on the KIAAA Board of Directors. 

Current Position:

Wellsville Middle School Principal

  • Joined the fantastic staff of USD 289 in July of 2016. 

Previous Position:

I started my career in 1991 as a 3rd grade teacher. During my years in the classroom I also coached various sports at the middle school and high school levels. In 2002, I accepted my first administration position as an elementary principal. Throughout my fifteen years in administration, I have had the opportunity to work at all levels – elementary, middle school and high school, as well as serve as district athletic director at a small 5A, large 4A school. The experiences I have encountered along the way have offered their share of challenges but also numerous rewarding successes.  Through it all, the most gratifying of everything are the relationships that were developed at the stops along my educational journey. 

Family Information:

My wife Candi and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in August of 2016. We have been blessed with two wonderful children. Landon our older of the two, is a senior at Southwestern College. He is on the Moundbuilder golf team and is on schedule to graduate in May 2017, with a business degree. Our daughter Sydney is a freshman at Washburn University. Sydney is an elementary education major with a minor in ESL. She is also heavily involved in the Leadership Institute, where she holds a position on the leadership council as an incoming freshman. 

Personal Information:

My hobbies and interests include, flower gardening, camping and sporting events (anything Jayhawk related), Royals, Chiefs. I am looking forward to satisfying my thirst for the arts by experiencing music and dinner theater productions.
