Welcome. The best way to contact me is through e-mail. I attempt to return all messages within 24-48 hrs. This is my tenth year as the principal at Newton Middle School and my 32nd year as an educator.
I have a triple major in Secondary Education, History and Psychology from Minot State University. I received a Master's Degree in Counseling from the University of North Dakota and completed my Type D principal's license at the University of Denver.
I enjoy reading, sports, especially baseball and have a collection of bats and baseballs in my office. My wife is a special education teacher in the Cherry Creek School District and we have been married for 29 years. We have two boys a 22 year old son who graduated from Arizona State University this spring and works in Phoenix. We also have a 16 year old son who is a Junior at Cherry Creek High School.

Years at Newton: This is my second year at Newton Middle School. I taught for six years in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and one year in Chandler, Arizona before heading into administration for two years. I moved to Denver in 2010 and worked in administration at a middle school in Cherry Creek for three years before coming here in 2013.
Life Outside of Newton: My wife and I have been married nine years and have two children. Ben is five and Lia is three and they keep us busy. Besides spending my time away from Newton with my family, I am a big sports fan. I follow my alma mater, Michigan State University closely and look forward to college football and basketball seasons. Additionally, I am a big Detroit Tigers fan.
I am extremely fortunate to work with such a great staff here at Newton and look forward to many years here. Please call or email if there is anything I can do for you and your family!
