I am an Arizona native and have enjoyed living in the great state of Arizona my entire life. I believe in the public-school system and am a product of public-school education myself. Educationally, I have my AA degree from Yavapai College in Prescott, my undergraduate from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, my master’s degree from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, and my doctoral degree from Grand Canyon University. This year, I will be starting my 25th year in public school education and I have had a very blessed career. In my teaching career, I spent eight (8) years as a teacher in the Cartwright, Deer Valley, and Paradise Valley School districts where I had the opportunity to teach at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. In my building level administrative career, I spent 16 years as a dean of students in the Paradise Valley School District, assistant principal in the Glendale Union High School and Chandler Unified School Districts, and middle school and high school principal for 10 years in the Cave Creek Unified School District. As a district leader, I just completed my first year as the superintendent of the Casa Grande Union High School District and have enjoyed becoming part of the Casa Grande Community.
Personally, I have been happily married to my beautiful wife Shelly for 25 years and we have three adult children who are all successfully pursuing their professional careers or finishing college. My wife and I are residents of the Casa Grande community and we have become active and productive members of the community. I am very excited to begin my second year as superintendent and embrace the opportunity to continue to lead the Casa Grande Union High School District. I look forward to continuing to build the relationships that will benefit our district and improve the quality of education for our students and families in the greater Casa Grande Union High School District communities.
