Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! This is my first year at Central Lyon, and I’m happy to be here. I’ve taught students in a computer-lab setting for 17 years. Prior to that, I worked in the environmental field assessing various lands for ownership and operational purposes. Last year, my wife, Tracy, and I moved back to Rock Rapids, her hometown. Tracy and I have one daughter, Emily, who will be a sophomore at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN. I grew up in Kansas City, MO, and yes, am a life-long Royals and Chiefs fan. I’m looking forward to working with your students in the middle school tech-ed courses and robotics program here at CL.
