I graduated from TK in 2005 and graduated from Western Michigan University in 2010. Since then, I have earned my Masters in Education Leadership and have taught in various teaching roles for the past eight years. My wife is a first grade teacher in Wayland and we have two children together. Our daughter is six and will be in first grade, and our son just turned one in June. I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, fishing, and camping. I am very excited to have this opportunity to come and be a part of the school district I grew up in. We live in Middleville and will be raising our children here. I am thankful to not only be a part of this community but also be able to teach in the same district my children will grow up in. I am looking forward to a positive and rewarding school year!
