I am entering third year at Century Middle School and my thirtieth year in education. I was a middle school math, social studies, and physical education teacher and coach. I coached middle school football, wrestling, basketball, and track. I am going into my eighteenth year in administration and fifteenth year as a Middle School Principal. I received my BS in Jr. High/Middle School Education from Illinois State University and my MS in Educational Administration from Northern Illinois University as well as additional postgraduate hours in educational finance and administration. I have really enjoyed the collegiality of the staff here at Century Middle School and how they are always working together to improve their craft at helping students to grow. We also know how to have fun while learning and growing! The parents and students have been fantastic to work with and very supportive. I am the father of four kids. Two boys ages 23, 21, and two girls ages 11, and 9. My wife and I live with our daughters in Loveland and enjoy attending our kids activities, exploring the mountains, sports, yard work (at least helping my wife) and site seeing.
