Thank you for taking the time to visit my webpage. As the junior high and high school physical education teacher, I intend to provide students with a positive experience and the knowledge needed to live a physically active lifestyle. Today's youth are the first generation in hundreds of years who are not expected to have a longer life expectancy than their parents. Because of this, I believe that physical education is as important as it ever has been.
The expectations that I have for my students are very simple. If students meet these expectations, they will do very well in my class. I do not grade students based on their athletic ability. Students DO NOT have to be good athletes in order to get good grades in my class. The following are my expectations of each student:
1. Arrive on time
2. Dress properly
3. Have a positive attitude
4. Actively participate and give a good effort at all times
5. Respect the teacher and other students
6. Do not intentionally destroy equipment and facilites
7. Complete all assignments and turn them in ON TIME
Please feel free to contact me by e-mail or call the school at 996-1511 and ask for extension 208. I would be more than happy to talk to you regarding any questions or concerns that you may have.

I grew up and went to school in Wellsville, Ohio. After graduating from Wellsville, I went to college at The Ohio State University. While I was attending Ohio State I met my wife, Brooke (Bietry) Gray. Brooke is a 1996 graduate of Tri-Village and that is how I ended up here in New Madison. Brooke and I have been married for fifteen years and have a 14 year old daughter, Delanee, a son, Brecken, who is nine, and another daughter, Taytum, who is seven.
I am currently the Jr./Sr. High School Physical Education teacher, Athletic Director, and Head Girls Basketball Coach. This will be my 13th year as a teacher, 8th year as the Athletic Director, and 18th year as a basketball coach at Tri-Village. Prior to joining the Tri-Village teaching staff, I spent two years as the school social worker.
