I have taught in an elementary classroom, grades 1-4. Teaching and learning is my passion, I love working with students and parents. I will always reflect with pride on my time in the classroom. Being a teacher is one of the most admirable jobs in the professional world. I have also served as an elementary school counselor, elementary assistant principal, and director of curriculum. I am looking forward to interacting with the Wellsville community.
The most important part of my life has been, and will always be, my family. I was blessed to meet my wife and college sweetheart at Kansas State University. My wife, Breanne, is a Labor & Delivery Registered Nurse at our local hospital. We have been married five years now and have three beautiful children. Our oldest, Ash, is 4 years old and is attending 4-year-old preschool and loves playing outside. My middle child, Baylor, is 2 years old and always busy exploring the world around him. My youngest, Cecilia, is 9 months old, and growing like a weed.
My wife and I enjoy spending time with family, going out on dates, seeing friends, and the occasional very competitive card game.
Being a father and an educator is the foundation of my passion to ensure that every child receives an excellent education. My vision is; to offer a World Class Public School experience through curriculum, instruction, and assessment, ensuring stakeholder engagement and whole-child focus.
