Hello, Wildcats! I am a very passionate educator that has dedicated life to helping students see their true potential. I have been teaching for 13 years. After finishing my bachelor's degree at Northwest Missouri State University, I taught for two years in Madrid, Iowa. I was honored to join the Carlisle High School staff in 2007. I spent the next eight years teaching special education and moved to alternative services in 2015. This move allowed me to work with more students in more ways.
I am a super proud father of three amazing young people. They all attend Carlisle schools and are earning a great education in three of our four buildings. My wife also works in our school system.
In my time away from school, I still want to work with youth. I am a high school baseball umpire with four state tournament appearances, a high school football official, and a volunteer coach with the Carlisle youth association basketball program. I like to stay very busy!
