Teaching and Coaching is something that I truly love to do. I have been a teacher since 1998 and have coached various sports. Started working in Pella in the fall of 2001. I have coached high school football as an assistant coach since 2001 and I am also the head boys track coach since 2006. My desire is to help students and athletes find a greatness inside them so that they might go out and do great things in this world far beyond getting good grades or being a good athlete. I have 3 sons, Drew, Trey and Cruz. We enjoy time with our family and friends, going camping or just spending time together.
