Greetings students, parents, and patrons. I am very excited for the upcoming school year, I know it is going to be a great year!
I graduated from Northwestern Oklahoma State University in 2005. This will be my third year in Ellinwood and my twelveth year as an educator.
My family consists of my wife, Michelle, and our two boys, Caleb and Joshua. Michelle is the creative one around here, she can do things I can't conceptualize let alone produce. One of her hobbies is decorating sweet (ha!) cakes for the boys' birthdays. Caleb and Joshua both enjoy riding their bikes, swimming, playing with cars, and general rowdiness.
SPLASH! SUMMER FUN!
My hobbies include camping, running, watching Sooner football, and mountain biking. Though we don't exactly live in the mountains there are some great trails in the area. One such trail is Switchgrass Trail at Lake Wilson. This 24 miles of challenging single track has been given awards and recognition from the International Mountain Bike Association. In addition to riding with friends I occasionally compete in mountain bike races, usually in eastern Kansas and central Oklahoma. My favorite autocorrect of all time was a message sent to me that came across as Mr. Zoom. Although this name may be not be a true indication of my speed on a bike, I like to think it fits.
