Welcome. I am excited to begin my first year with the Greeley County School District. I grew up in a small town in Northeast Kansas, Havensville (pop: 85), and attended Onaga High School five miles away. I received my Bachelors of Education emphasis in Business Education from Kansas State University where I met my wife Chricket. She is originally from Sharon Springs, and we have been married for three years. I will be entering my 5th year as a Business/Computer Teacher. I spent one year at Abilene High School teaching website design, programming, and computer applications to name a few. When my wife was accepted to the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at Wichita State University we made the move to the Wichita area, and I began teaching and coaching at Garden Plain Elementary and High School where I remained for three years. I taught middle school computers and technology and coached football, wrestling, and track. Upon completion of school my wife was offered a job at Goodland Regional Medical Center as their second PT. I am excited to be joining this district and have heard great things. My wife is related to Jack and El Arnold along with others in the community so I have had several opportunities to visit with them about the town and school. Again, I am very excited for the upcoming year and future. I feel very fortunate to be here and look forward to a great year.
