I’m excited for the opportunity to join Jordan Public Schools, and look forward to working with students, staff, and community members of ISD 717.

I began my career teaching 9th grade world history at Pioneer Ridge Freshman Center in Chaska, MN, followed by teaching 10th and 12th grade history and government at Chanhassen High School for 5 years.  While at Chanhassen, I was also recognized as a teacher of the year finalist in 2013.  I also served as the head varsity baseball coach for 3 years.  My most recent position was serving as an Administrative Dean at Chanhassen High School for the past three years.
 
I have been involved with, and led, a number of different committees during my career, such as: PBIS, Ramp Up to Readiness, social studies department chair, integration of flex scheduler, secondary design team, etc. I believe that it is my job, and the job of my staff, to be sure we are rising to the challenge of meeting the needs of all students and helping them to reach their full potential in becoming successful, 21st century learners.  I believe in keeping the atmosphere of my building positive and having mutual trust, respect and open communication between staff, students and families to help ensure the success of all.

Outside of school I am the father of three adorable children with my wife Jen, who teaches 1st grade at JES. Avery is our oldest and she just finished 2nd grade.  Harper will be starting preschool next year, and I can’t believe she is already 4. Beckett, who just turned 1 in March loves his trains, and playing ball.  We love to be outside enjoying everything Jordan has to offer, and we continue to appreciate the great people that make up this wonderful community. I look forward to the opportunities we will have to support students, and showcase the many talents and hard work of Jordan Public Schools.
