I am very excited to lead the Willow Creek team as the principal.
I grew up in the Treasure Valley and graduated from Capital High School. I attended Boise State University, where I majored in Elementary Education. I have been married for 15 years and have 4 children. My wife Katie is a group fitness instructor at the YMCA. We enjoy watching reality TV, and spending time as a family. This summer Katie and I have the opportunity to tour Italy.
After I graduated from Boise State, my wife and I wanted an adventure, so we moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. I taught in Las Vegas for 2 years. When we decided the adventure was over, we knew we wanted to return home to the Treasure Valley. After being hired by the Meridian School District I taught at Lake Hazel Elementary. While I was at Lake Hazel Elementary I completed my master’s degree in Educational Leadership. I left Lake Hazel Elementary after earning my master’s degree, and I spent 3 years as an elementary administrative intern at Ponderosa Elementary and Prospect Elementary. For the past 3 years I have been an assistant principal at Lake Hazel Middle School.
I love to watch students learn. My goal is to build a positive culture at Willow Creek that incorporates 21st century skills, high expectations for students, collaboration, and quality instruction.
