I have lived in Southeast Nebraska all of my life growing up in the small town of Byron in Thayer County and graduating from nearby Fairbury. Therefore the Southern School District has been a great fit. I actually come from a family of teachers with my grandpa being an ag teacher/FFA sponsor in Northeast Kansas and two of my aunts teaching in Nebraska and Missouri respectively. My wife is also a 2nd-grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary in Beatrice. I currently serve as a 7-12 Social Studies teacher at Southern with extracurricular duties including Assistant Softball, Assistant Boy’s Basketball, & Fellowship of Christian Athletes sponsor. I’m entering my 17th year teaching at Southern Public Schools. I began teaching my first year out of Peru State College during the 2004-2005 school year. My family includes my wife Tara and my 3 daughters Nevaeh, Eden, & Willa. Tara and I have been married for 14 years and have lived in Beatrice ever since. In my free time, I still enjoy playing sports and helping coach my daughters’ softball and basketball teams. I’m also an avid fan of Midwest college & professional teams including the Chiefs, Royals, & Huskers football. Physical & spiritual development has always been a big part of my life as I enjoy being active with my health & growing in my faith. New adventures for our family in the past couple of years include moving into a new home in Beatrice (100+-year-old beautiful house) and adding three members to our family with a golden doodle named “Hoz” and two kittens named "Marvel" and "Marty".
