I grew up on a dairy farm in Michigan and had a career in agriculture for many years before becoming a teacher. I graduated from UCM in Warrrensburg, Missouri in 2006. I have been teaching 4th grade at Skyline since 2007. I am fortunate to be married to my lovely wife Kenda. We have the honor of being the parents of Kevin, Tinley, and Millie. We enjoy traveling and being outdoors.
