This is my seventh year as Assistant Superintendent and my eighteenth year in education. Before education I worked in several industries or businesses, e.g. banking, medical and manufacturing. My education career started as a fifth grade teacher in the Potosi R-III School District, then as an eighth grade teacher in Dunklin R-V School District, moving from there to be elementary principal in the Arcadia Valley R-II School District.
During my time in education I have furthered my own education completing my Specialist’s degree while at AV R-II. Because I believe strongly in personal education and because I strive to give my best to our students, I am beginning work on a Doctorate in Education degree. This has been a long-term goal and I am excited about pursuing this degree. My personal educational goals are based on what will help me do my job in providing the best education for our children.
My wife and I enjoy living in this beautiful city. Our neighbors are very friendly and keep their places in tip top shape. Perryville and Perry County are beautiful places for families, raising children and putting down roots. Perry County should be the destination for all Missourians.
PCSD#32 is a great school district with great students, staff and patrons. We do a great job educating the children of Perry County and we continually strive to provide a better educational experience for all. The staff and Board are committed to a great education for all children and so am I. It is a pleasure to be part of this great educational system.
