About Me...

 Staff PhotoSince I was in high school, I knew I wanted to become a physical education teacher. I like to have fun in my class and make the kids laugh. At the same time, my students know when we need to get started, we need to be serious and quiet. I show my students the upmost respect in and out of class. I also hold my students to that same standard. I enjoy singing, dancing, and having fun in my classes. 

Quick Facts...

Years Teaching:

This is my 6th year teaching and my 4th year at Nelson Prairie

Started Working at NLSD:



I have an amazing wife, Erin, and a 5 month old son, Carson. We also have a yellow lab and cat.

Favorite Thing About Teaching:

What I love most about my job is watching the kids. Seeing first grade students come into the building and watching them grow in second and third grade. The students really make my job fun! I enjoy making the kids laugh and teaching them skills that they will hopefully use as they get older. 

Graduated From:

Eastern Illinois University


I love being outside during the summer! If I'm not working in the yard, you can find me playing sand volleyball, golfing, or taking the dog out for a hike! One of my favorite hobbies is wood working and updating my house. I love to watch movies and go out to dinner with friends! I also love spending time with my family on weekends and going on vacation with them!

Favorite Book:

American Sniper
