I am currently in my fifth year as the 7-12 principal at Dundy County Stratton. Prior to my current role as a principal was a teacher at Palmyra-Bennet schools in Southeast Nebraska where I taught anatomy, physics, chemistry, health science, and physical/earth science. During my time there I was also part of the football coaching staff in various roles through grades 7-12. I received my Masters in 7-12 Administration in May of 2015 from Chadron State College and started my current role shortly after. In an effort to grow in my role as a principal and leader within the school district I joined the doctorate of school improvement program at the University of West Georgia with a focus on educational leadership. Some of my hobbies/interests include involvement in the outdoors where I enjoy hunting and fishing. Additionally, I relish the opportunity to read on my down time and spend time with my wife Lisa, our two year old daughter Leah, and our three beagles Zoey, Ellie, and Hazel.
