For the past fifteen years Falcon has been home for my family and me and I am extremely excited to be the new Principal at Falcon High School. I can’t think of a better honor than being able to have an impact on the lives of the young men and women in my own community. For those who haven’t had the opportunity to meet or get to know me I want to provide a bit of information on my education, professional and personal background.
I began my career in education after completing a Bachelor of Science Degree at Kansas State University in Elementary Education. While at Kansas State University, I participated and lettered in track four years, while also completing six years of service in the Marine Corps Reserves. My work experience includes two years teaching 5th grade at the elementary level, one each in Junction City, Kansas and one in Austin, Texas. In addition to teaching at the elementary level, I spent an additional five years teaching Social Studies at Junction City Junior High School, in Junction City, Kansas. While working in Junction City, I returned to Kansas State and completed a Master’s Degree in School Administration.
I began my administrative career at the elementary and middle school levels in Wichita, Kansas. Since then I have been a middle school principal in Baltimore County, Maryland, and an elementary principal and high school principal.
In addition to my school level experience I have served as an Assistant Director for Human Resources in the Widefield School District, Regional Manager for the Colorado Department of Education and Assistant Commissioner for Turnaround for the Colorado Department of Education. While working at the Colorado Department of Education, I completed my Ph.D. through Capella University. Prior to accepting the position here at Falcon High School, I served as the Operations Manager for Denver Public Schools Career Connect where I managed grants, support building and facility renovations for CTE Programs and supported schools with budgeting and transportation.
I am married to a wonderful and supportive women Jennifer, who is a Principal in the Widefield School District and the proud father of six daughters, Morgan, who is a surgeon, Lauren who is a lawyer, Chelsie who is a teacher, Cassie who is a teacher, Cambria who is a nurse and Graycen who is nine and entering the fourth grade. My dream is to be here and hand Graceyn her diploma when she graduates from Falcon High School.
