Public education is at the heart of our communities and is vital in the development of our youth. Schools not only teach math, science, social studies, and language arts but also morals and values that are held by the community. I believe that this is the main reason why districts have been set up in a capacity for local governance through elected board members. It is important to me to not only educate our students to prepare them for college and careers but also develop a pride not only in the schools but community, state, and country. This is why my family has always played a central role in the districts I have been a part of and why I have strived to advance my career in a leadership capacity. Schools are a true reflection of the communities they serve. I want to be a part of making great communities and schools.
My family is the most important thing in my life. My wife and I have been together since high school. We have three children (two girls and a boy) ranging in age from middle school to lower elementary. I spend as much time as possible with them traveling, participating in athletics, visiting museums, and playing video games. My family has always become a part of the district I have been employed by through attending and supporting various school and community events. This is an important part of my leadership philosophy.
I am an avid runner, I love to travel the country and world, and enjoy watching sports.
