Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Vikings! I am excited to serve Coeur d'Alene High school this year as Dean of Students. This is my eleventh year in education and for the past nine years, I taught the economics classes here at CHS. I started in the Lakeland School District teaching the Gifted and Talented Classes. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Idaho, with a Gift and Talented Endorsement from Boise State University. I am currently working on my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.
Before teaching, I spent 8 years with the ARMY, infantry, and did combat tours in Iraq. I am active in the outdoors and love the St. Maries area for all outdoor activities. For the past 20 years, I have been happily married to my wife Jennifer, and we have two great children, a senior son and a junior daughter.
I have been the Skeet and Trap assistant head coach and have been with the program since 2016. I absolutely love talking about economics, finances, history, government, and discipline in order to help students better understand these areas and how the world works and operates.
