It is with great pleasure I begin my second year at KCIA. I have 21 years in the field of education as a SPED paraprofessional, sixth grade teacher and 12 years as the Activities and Athletic Director for the Center School District. I hold a K-6 Missouri lifetime teaching certificate, a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education from Ottawa University, a Masters Degree in Athletic Administration from William Woods University and I am a Certified Master Athletic Administrator through the NIAAA. I am married to the love of my life, Jeannie, in March 2021 we celebrated our 40th anniversary. We have one daughter, Elizabeth, son-in-law Cory, a very adorable grandson Charlie and a beautiful granddaughter Carly. They live in rural north central Iowa where corn is king. At home I spend quality time in our garden, I love to fish and enjoy feeding the birds. Jeannie and I spend many evenings sitting on our deck watching the trains go by. I am looking forward to another great year at KCIA. Stop by my desk to see pictures of my wonderful family!
