Pre K to 12th grade Assistant Principal/Athletic Director

Welcome to Bement Schools!  I am blessed to be in my first year as the Pre K to 12th grade Assistant Principal. 

Before coming to Bement, I graduated from Illinois State University with my Bachelor Degree in Junior High/Middle School Education.  I taught 7th and 8th grade math and PE in Pawnee, Illinois for eighteen years. I have coached football, basketball and track.  While I was in Pawnee I also received a Masters in Educational Administration from the University of Illinois in Springfield. 

In 2006, I accepted the position of Pre K to 8th grade Principal at Waverly Elementary School.  In 2011 the school did some restructuring and I was assigned to be the 6th to 12th grade Principal.  

In 2013, I accepted the 6th to 8th grade Principal and Athletic Director position at Cerro Gordo Middle School.  Once again due to restructuring I was assigned to be the 7th to 12th grade Principal at Cerro Gordo Jr/Sr High School in 2015.

I have been married for 28 years to my wife Lisa and we live in Decatur.  Lisa is a Recreational Therapist at Decatur Memorial and we have 2 beautiful daughters.  Keri, our oldest, graduated from Millikin University in 2016 and is a Registered Nurse at Decatur Memorial.  Kelsea, our youngest, graduated from SIUE in 2017 and is a Registered Nurse at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield.

We are die hard Cub fans and in our free time we can be found on our boat on Lake Decatur.  We have 3 dogs, Rizzo, Payton and Toews (as you can see we are from the Chicago area).

Thank you for the opportunity to work in the Bement schools.  If you ever need me please contact me by using the information below.
