My wife Nicole and I have just celebrated our 20th year of marriage. We have 3 children, Adam who is 16, Garrett is 13 and Clare is 9. Adam is our miracle child born at 1 lb 5 oz and was 23 week gestational. Adam is visually impaired but that doesn't keep him from playing and listening to music. Garrett and Clare keep us very busy in all their sports, band and choir programs. We love to go camping and go to Lake Michigan in the summer. We have an all white Siberian Husky named Thunder.

What do you find most challenging about your job?
What I find most challenging about my job is that I wear several hats and I want to excellent at them all. I love to work with my team of teachers as they are truly are the best in the state of Michigan. Some days I am not able to work with my team because I am handling discipline, training new teachers, monitoring lunches, setting up for a game, checking transportation, attending meetings, or answering questions on curriculum/best practices.

What is most rewarding about your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is having a great staff. From my staff to my administration team, we get the job done. I have such a supportive board of education that allows me to add programs, try new initiatives and allows me to make changes to the school day for the betterment of the students. CHS continues to lead the county in test scores and we have been a top 4% and 5% performing high school. I love going into the classroom and observing all the classroom interactions, student engagement and 21st century teaching and learning.
