This year will be my fourth year as the Head of Teaching and Learning at Pella Christian Grade School and my fourth overall.  Prior to moving to my current role, I was a fifth grade teacher. 
I grew up in Northwest Iowa, graduated from college, and began my education career as a second grade teacher.  My experiences in teaching include a variety of grade levels ranging from second grade through eighth grade over my fifteen years in the classroom.  I also spent four years as a middle school principal.  I am looking forward to continued opportunities to share in the learning with students and to grow in the knowledge and love of Christ here at Pella Christian.
I met my wonderful wife, Amy, while in college and we have been married for 20 years.  We have three children.  Our daughter, Mara, headed off to College this fall.  Our son, Brayton will attend Pella Christian High.  Keegan will be attending fifth grade at Pella Christian Grade School.  I am very blessed to have them in my life.  Besides spending time with my family, I enjoy a variety of sports, movies, reading, boating, and coaching.
