About Me

Growing up in a small town in rural Nebraska, I fell in love with small town life and the opportunities students have while going to school in a small school. Coming from a family of educators, I saw first hand, the impact of educators and schools have on our young people as they become adults. My mission as an educator is to help develop our youth into responsible and respectable men and women who persevere when faced with adversity. My wife, Ashley, our three young children (Quinn, Daniel, Parker), and I are fortunate to be at Leyton Public Schools. In my time away from school, you will most likely find me attending sporting events or spending time with my family.


Philosophy of Education

It is the purpose of education to promote individuals who can think logically and critically about issues. It is imperative that schools provide safe and controlled environments where students engage in activities that will encourage critical thinking skills. The role of educators is to build relationships and create physically and emotionally safe environments where students engage with each other and the course content. A major challenge to educators is to differentiate lessons to reach all students. Students come from diverse backgrounds and have a variety of preferred learning styles. To ensure we are reaching all students, an array of methods must be implemented, expectations must be clearly communicated and personal connections must be made with each student. It is my role as an administrator to model professional relationships and interactions to accomplish the mission of Leyton Public Schools: "To cultivate life-long learners as the successfully transition into our diverse world."
