A Little About Me:
My son Ben, Subiaco Class of 2018, led me to teach at Subiaco Academy: “My oldest son did some research and decided that he wanted to attend Subiaco so that he would be more prepared for the rigors of college. It was such an amazing experience for him and the growth and maturity that he displayed was so overwhelming, I knew that I wanted to be part of Subiaco Academy.” I initially went to school thinking I wanted to be a Park Ranger because I had always enjoyed the outdoors. I worked as a Park Ranger Intern for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and was afforded the chance to present programs to campers and various groups. This led me to fall in love with educating and teaching people. I spent the previous 11 years teaching in the Paris School District.
I’m from Olathe, Kansas, and attended college at Arkansas Tech in Russellville where I met my wife, Sheila. We’ve traveled quite a bit early in our marriage, but had the opportunity to come back and settle down in Paris where Sheila is from. We have two boys, Ben, Class of 2018, and Zach, Class of 2021.
I enjoy working outside on the farm where my family has a small herd of cows. I spend a tremendous amount of time reading about and studying the use of technology in the classroom and about instructional practices. I love anything outdoors from fishing to hunting, to riding four-wheelers.
