I graduated from Fairview Area Schools in 1991. I then went on to SVSU and graduated from there in 1996 with a teaching certificate with a major in mathematics and a minor in psychology. I started teaching high school math here in Reese in the fall of 1997. My wife, Melissa, and I moved to Reese in 1999, and have since had two kids: Hunter was born in 2000 and Haleigh was born in 2003.
I coached girls varsity basketball with Mr. Gruber for four years and track with Mr. Jordan for six years, but gave both of them up in order to spend more time with my kids. I have been a class advisor for the classes of 2003, 2010, and now 2014, and have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get to know these students ouside of the classroom setting. I love to golf, snowmobile and fish, as well as spend with my family in my spare time!
I've been doing this Dean of Students thing since the start of the 2010-11 school year, and love it! It's a different side of the public school setting. I organize standardized testing, help with scheduling, college applications, scholarships, dual enrollment, and whatever else comes my way!
