My Why:

I got into education because I love working with students and motivating them to achieve success. I have always seemed to have a gift of being able to work with youth and assisting them to achieve their goals whether on the sports field or in the classroom. This started with a baseball and basketball coaching position and eventually grew into a great educational career that I have enjoyed and feel blessed with everyday.
I have been in education since 2002, and I served four years in administration before becoming principal at EPHS in 2016.  

Educational Background:

B.S. degree, Southeast Missouri State University

Masters Degree in Educational Administration, William Woods University

Specialist Degree in Educational Administration, William Woods University
