I have been fortunate to be an administrator at Pella Community High since 2000. My first ten years was as an assistant principal. I have been the principal since 2010. Previously, I was a teacher and coach for seventeen years in four different schools. I graduated from Buena Vista University with Bachelor of Science degree, Masters of Science from Kansas State University, and Education Specialist from Drake University. My wife is Director of Education Opportunity Center at Indian Hills. I have three children, Paige is married with two daughters and teaches at the elementary level in Waukee, Tanna is a elementary guidance counselor in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Sam works in Des Moines at Mediacom in the Engineer.
