I am honored to serve as the Nevada High School Principal. Previously, I was the Nevada Middle School Athletics/Activities Director from 2014-2016. Prior to coming to Nevada, I taught 4th grade at Prairie Trail elementary in Ankeny and also coached varsity football at Ankeny HS for one year. Before my time in Ankeny, I served as the Administrative Assistant (Dean of Students) and head football coach at Waterloo East HS for three years. I began my career in education at Price Lab/Northern University HS in Cedar Falls, where I taught 3rd grade (one year), 4th grade (two years), and 5th grade (one year) while also serving as the MS/HS Activities Director for three years and the head football coach for five years. I am originally from Cedar Falls and graduated from Northern University High School in 2000. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and my Masters in Educational Administration from the University of Iowa while also playing football for the Hawks from 2000-2004.
I am a life long learner and enjoy working with students across all grade levels. I love spending time with my wife Michelle and our three children; Paige-7, Mason-4 and Brady-2. We enjoy spending time with our extended families, attending Iowa sporting events, and participating in almost every sport under the sun. We also enjoy watching movies and reading books! I look forward to the upcoming school year and Go Cubs!
