Hello from Science Room 309. I am looking forward to meeting the students and parents of Tri-Village Schools. My wife Becky and I have been married 33 years. We have lived in West Alexandria for the past 27 years where we raised our three children Kate, Maggie and Miles. I graduated from Eaton HS and Anderson University where I earned degrees in Biology, General Science, Health and Physical Education. My Master's degree was completed at Miami University in Health Science Education with emphasis on Exercise Science. While attending Anderson University I worked on the Gustafson Farms in northwest Kansas to pay for my schooling. In Kansas, I learned how to ride a cutting quarter horse to work with cattle, and I learned what craziness was like when it was time to harvest 4200 acres of wheat. Brewster, Kansas was the first school where I taught and coached. The next 37 years I taught and coached at Eaton City Schools. For several years I was the advisor for the Eaton HS Mock Trial Team. My wife and I love to camp, hike and travel.
