This is my 28th year as a teacher in the Grandview School District! I started my career in Grandview as a 5th grade teacher at Belvidere Elementary. I worked as a 5th grade teacher for 5 years and then spent one year in 6th grade there. After that I spent one year at each middle school teaching math. Since then I have been teaching the Gifted students of Grandview in the Focus program. I have also had the opportunity to serve as a coach in Grandview, 3 years of High School Volleyball, one year of Tennis, one year of basketball, and 15 years of Track. As a track coach I have had the opportunity to help coach 8 State Championship Teams and multiple individual state champions. I met my wife here in the district, so besides my wonderful career it is truly a place that has helped me build a family!
