Biography:I’ve spent most of my life living in Nebraska, but my father was military so I’ve also lived in Colorado, Texas, and South Carolina.  My wife works at Lake Contrary Elementary as a paraprofessional in a K-2nd grade room with autistic children.  My daughter is a freshman and my son is in 7th grade at DeKalb..  In my downtime, I enjoy outdoor activities, playing PS3, and watching football.  I attended the University of Notre Dame for a short time where I was part of the Band of the Fighting Irish.  It was a great experience, but with education being my calling I decided to finish my degree at Buena Vista University.  I obtained my master’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Omaha, and am currently working on my Specialist’s degree through William Woods University.  This will be my 15th year in education.
