Welcome to my webpage at Mount Vernon Middle School!
This is my 21st year in public education.  I taught high school math for 12 years in the Mansfield area before becoming a principal for 6 years.  I served on the Content Advisory Committee for the Algebra I AIR state assessment for 4 years.  I have also served on other various ODE committees related to model curriculum for Geometry, principal licensure, and Ohio's Content Standards for Algebra I.  I have earned 2 Associates of Applied Science degrees from the Community College of the Air Force in Personnel Resource Management and Education and Training Systems.  I hold a Bachelors of Business Administration degree from the University of Alaska Anchorage and a Masters of Science in Educational Leadership from the University of Dayton.  I am certified by ODE in 7-12 Integrated Mathematics and 4-9 Principal as well as 5-12 Principal.
I am a graduate of Ashland Crestview High School and grew up just north of Mansfield near the Mansfield Lahm Airport and the Ohio State Reformatory.  Immediately upon graduation, I enlisted in the US Air Force and served 10 years in Personnel and Education.  I was stationed at Offut AFB (Omaha,NE), Chanute AFB (Champaign IL), and Elmendorf AFB (Anchorage, AK).  I am married and have 5 grown children and 2 grandchildren.  My wife, Michelle, and I have 2 Bernese Mountain dogs named Elsa and Woody.  I was an OHSAA football, basketball, baseball, and softball official for 15 years.  I am now a coach for various middle school teams.  I spend my free time as a Red Coat at Ohio Stadium for sporting events and concerts, do some fishing and golf here and there, and gardening as well.  I have had several odd part-time jobs:  ski lift operator, drivers ed instructor, shopping mall Santa Claus, tour guide at the Louisville Slugger factory, and usher at Churchill Downs during the Derby.  I am also a huge fan of Seinfeld, Star Wars, and classic movies ("You Can't Take It With You" being my favorite).
You should be able to find informational links for my classes to the left.  Thanks for visiting and I look forward to working with you this year.
