About Me

I have been married to Barb, my beautiful bride for 27 years. We have a son, Jack who graduated from LCS (2013) and a daughter, Brady, LCS Grad (2016), who is a senior at Grand Canyon University. I taught Math for 15 years and continue to help kids when they need it. I have been the Secondary Principal at Lincoln Christian for 4 years, prior to this year I served as Activities Director (for 12 years), Secondary Assistant Principal (for 4 years) and Head Football Coach (13 years). I enjoy fishing, hunting, kayaking and hanging out with my family, including our dogs Champ and Hero.

Philosophy of Education

I believe that God has called me into this profession to invest in the lives of the students that I get to interact with on a daily basis. I believe that it is our duty as Christian educators to train them up, encourage them and help them maximize and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. A part of my personal philosophy is to build relationships with the students and their families; to understand where they are coming from and to help them have the best experience they can get from school.
