I am entering my 21st year in education. I started my teaching career as a long term substitute at Mary Blair Elementary (Loveland, CO.) and then as an elementary teacher at Fitzmorris Elementary (Arvada, CO.). After teaching, I became a high school dean of students at Horizon High School. I then accepted a position as the assistant principal at Silver Creek Elementary. After 5 years, I was announced as the principal of Silver Creek Elementary in the summer of 2015. This school year (2019-20) will mark my 10th year at Silver Creek Elementary.
I am a proud product of Adams 12 Five Star Schools. I attended Pecos Jr. High and graduated from Northglenn High School in 1988. After high school, I earned my associate’s degree at Pratt Community College (KS) (on a baseball scholarship), my bachelor’s degree/teacher's license from the University of Northern Colorado, and my master’s degree/principal’s license from the University of Colorado @ Denver.
I am happily married with four children. My wife, Katie, works for the Colorado Dept. of Education in secondary special education. My son, Patrick (30), graduated from Broomfield High School, Otero Junior College, and the University of Nebraska-Kearney (where he played baseball) and earned his business degree. He is currently employed by Tesla in Seattle, Washington. My son, Parker (25), graduated from Broomfield High School and earned his business degree from CU Denver. He is currently a managment trainee at Enterprise Rent-A-Car. My daughter, Kennedy (8), is a 3rd grade student at Silver Creek. She is extremely excited to be a S.O.A.R.ing Eagle and loves to sing and dance. My daughter, Paige (3), is a bundle of energy and attitude. Our family spends many evenings just seeing what she will do next.
I love sports (especially baseball) and music (especially concerts-which I have a very nice list of shows I have attended if you would like to see it :)). I love working with children and supporting them in their daily challenges, questions, and celebrations. I am honored to be an administrator at Silver Creek and in Adams 12 Five Star Schools. I love the challenge and opportunity of returning to a district that helped me become the person and educator that I am today.
